We want more food!<br />

Update on the young barn swallows: These babies are working their parents into an early grave with their constant demands to be feed.  I think they don't want to fly off on their own since they have it so good lazing around the nest while their parents feed them.  Kind of like some human kids, LOL.  I think the smaller one with its mouth shut is the only male, who doesn't seem to compete well with his larger, more demanding big sisters....sound familiar to some of you?<br />

Re Donna's comment; the males have a slighly darker orange breast, just barely visible in this photo.<br />
