Violet-green Swallow's feather day


The quality of this photo is poor, but the significance of the moment earned it a place on the blog. The female Violet-green Swallow brought in the first piece of nesting material today -- a feather. The same thing happened last year, but then no other feathers were brought in until the nest was almost complete. It appears to be symbolic, and her behavior seemed almost ritualistic.

Dear floyd I think that violet green swallow is a beautiful bird. Only I can barely see the violet green swallow.
