Violet-Green Swallow Nesting - Wild Bird Wednesday

 



Mama has been collecting for the nest!




Handsome couple!




Still watching and waiting.
One day she'll be in the nest dozens of times the next day only a few. She is a tease! :) It has to happen soon, I've been watching her for 3-4 weeks!

  2. How exciting to see all the nesting activity. Love the colors on these birds, too. I might need to make some violet-green earrings :-)

    1. You read my mind, I've had it in the back of my mine to use these beauties as inspiration. Maybe I should create a blog hop challenge!! :)

  10. Okay okay......thanks for the pics and explanation! I was wondering if the brown versions were females. Very good to know. I saw some nesting a couple weekends ago and the one I saw hanging out in the nest was brown but it was definitely a VGSW. Nice!
