Waitin' On Supper ...

A sweet tree swallow fledgling waits for its mother to deliver supper to the nesting box on a beautiful late spring evening in early June at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

While there are young or eggs in the nest, adult tree swallows frequently dive bomb intruders, including curious humans, and attempt to drive them from the area – I personally know this to be true, and so does my camera!
