Barn Swallows still having babies

A friend of mine from Rocky Ford sent me this photo earlier this month (she needs to reset the date on her camera). This is a nest full of Barn Swallow nestlings that is under her carport. The nest was built on top of a frog wind chime.

Kim said that some of the nestlings had fallen out of the nest and she was worried the cats in the neighborhood would get them. It is not unusual for nestlings to fall, get pushed out or just try to fly away prematurely. Sadly free-roaming cats are a real risk for these babies.
