BPW: Cliff Swallows

On our drive back from Florida last month we took a detour to stop at the Unclaimed Baggage Center shop in Scottsboro, Alabama. On the way we stopped for breakfast in Ft. Payne, Alabama, where we saw a colony of Cliff Swallows.

They were perched on service wires and flying around a man-made stream. The birds also frequently made stops under a pair of small pedestrian bridges that crossed the stream.

These Cliff Swallows were life birds for us and it was a lot of fun to watch their antics.

    Nice captures of the birds on the wire Amy! I love swallows and this was an excellent place to stop wasn’t it? Plus you got a lifer too. It doesn’t get any better than that.
