In Bonding with the Barn Swallows, Nature's Best Teachers, I share accounts of my personal interactions with these charming birds.
There is one male swallow in particular who demonstrates unusual tameness. At first bewildered and perplexed by the swallow’s behavior, I eventually ascertain the reason for his friendliness.
The male swallow chatters to me one morning while perching on the porch rail at a distance of only three feet. Nine days later, from the utility wire, he again attempts to communicate with me through his unmistakable body language.
Two days later, the mystery is solved. An event reveals the content of the male swallow’s message to me
Bonding with the Barn Swallows is available at Amazon and would make a perfect holiday gift for someone who loves to study birds.
