The Peeps



I call these little fellows the "Peeps" . I've felt obligated to leave a garage door open now this spring and summer because a pair of barn swallows had moved in and here are their offspring, the peeps. They're so tiny and brand new. Every time I walk into the garage and talk to them, their little heads peek over the nest and their mouths are wide open.

I don't see barn swallows in Oregon. Many I haven't been in the right places. I miss those little peeps. We used to have tons in Minnesota.

Small Update on one of the Peeps

One of the babies fell out the nest this afternoon and I saw what I thought was a very tatty mouse scuttling under the tractor, imagine my suprise when I realised it was one of the peeps ,

Not sure if I did right but picked it up and found a ladder and gently put it back in the nest hope he is OK meanwhile mum and dad barn swallow were dive bombing so close to my head I could feel the breeze as they flew past

Hope the little chap or chappess is OK
