Mother swallow at the nest
go at me
Singing for your supper
These baby swallows are still in a prefeathered stage...The mother and father both feed them, presumbably bugs. As soon as the parent appears, they autmatically open their mouths wide and cheep
for food. It looks like the sight or sound of the parent automatically flips this response. The flash triggered the same response.
