What kind of birds?
by E. English
(Antioch, CA USA)
They are black with yellow chest and yellow around the neck and they have pointed wings. They are building a mud next on our front porch. Not able to provide any pictures.
You have barn swallows. Their flight is like poetry in motion. The deep fork in their tail enables them to steer themselves with marvellously quick, erratic turn, which makes their course through the air resemble forked lightening. Countless trips are made to mud puddles before a sufficient number of pellets are worked into the deep mud walls of the nursery. When there is a nestful of fledglings to feed, sticky little pellets of insects, caught on the wing, are carried to them by both parents from daylight to dusk. They are tireless workers!
