This was on a boat trip and the swallows followed us around the tour. After a while I discovered that they nested in the back of the boats roof. :)

  1. I just shake my head. Your 16 days in Costa Rica takes speed birding to a whole new level, did you wear out a camera? Did you sleep?

  4. I don't see swallows often in my locality, but when I do it's always in flight; hard to photograph! Enjoyed yours.

  7. Springman, no, not much sleep. Usually up at 5-6 in the morning when it was still dark. I think we had about 10h of birding each day when we did not travel. I am now posting from day 8 so there are still lot to find in my files. I´m half way. Barely! :)

  9. Such a pretty swallow with it's iridescent head. We have often watched our welcome swallows circling ferries on river crossing and nesting under them.

I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
