PIC OF THE WEEK: 06/20/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA • City of Richmond
Notes: Cliff Swallows are another species that has become well adapted to today’s ever changing environment. With the abundance of concrete bridges and overpasses, they readily utilize these man made structures to their benefit. Traditionally, these birds would have adhered their clay pot style nests to cliff overhangs and sidewalls. Each spring they migrate back from South America and the adults begin gather clay from the river banks and lake edges to build their unique conical mud homes. The nests are almost completely suspended upside-down and occasionally some will fall. Typically these nests are built as part of a colony, from a few pairs to hundreds or thousands . Most locations are over water or very near it. The Swallows fly out over the local grasses and waterways gathering insects while in flight. Here a chick awaits the next food delivery, while the adult takes a rest atop the nest.
