Juvenile Barn Swallow
Photographed on 7-6-13 at the Marine Nature Study Area in Oceanside, Long Island, NY.
Awesome catch, Beth! Excellent shot.
When we were leaving Colonial Williamsburg a few weeks ago, a not-so-baby mockingbird was in the tree yelling at its momma for more food. I’ve always seen the robins doing this, but didn’t realize other birds did too. That was a great shot you did – I sure wasn’t fast enough to get that mockingbird!
Yes, other baby birds open their mouths and flutter their wings for food; however, this one is actually just yawning. 🙂 As I was photographing this bird, it just opened and closed its mouth. The Marine Nature Study Area confirmed that this bird is indeed yawning!
Wow, that really is a big wide open mouth 🙂
