Update from the Lake: Baby Bird Edition II

As I mentioned in my last post, we have had at least two broods of tree swallows at the lake this summer; they nest in bird houses like these, built by MOH and hung here and there in our yard. These two last-to-leave-the-nest babies are hanging out, looking for a feeding to come their way.
It's quite possible that the lower baby bird did not make it. It wasn't getting fed quite as well as the bird on top, which fledged shortly after this photo was taken as far as we know. In any case, we have a late nesting tree-swallow couple in the back bird house, and MOH has heard the distinctive sounds of peeps from baby birds wanting to be fed.
