Just Fledged

and not quite sure about the strange things in this new world outside the nest.  This funny, little bit of a bird is a young Cliff Swallow (Petrochelidon pyrrhonota)

It survived the Great Flood of 2011, having been raised in a mud nest tacked to the uppermost part of a culvert through which poured the raging water from Boundary reservoir into Rafferty.   Stay safe, little bird.

  1. Stay same indeed little fellow. He's a survivor allright. :)
