Bank Swallow rescue

Port Stanley, Ontario

It was interesting to see how this adult Bank Swallow "rescued" a youngster that was pushed out of the nest -- look how it grabs the younsger with it's beak and foot -- it literally grabbed and "flipped" the hapless youngster back into the nest all within a second.
