Of course I meant no harm to these tiny creatures.
All I wanted was a few pictures of one of Mother Natures great miracles

What I got was a sample of Mother Natures great wrath when mother bird returned to find me up on a ladder photographing her babies.

Ever been attacked by an angry bird ??
I couldn't have come off that ladder fast enough if I had fallen !!!

I can't count how many times she pecked the back of my neck drawing blood and one vicious final stab to my right ear.

It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature Indeed !!!!!
She's vicious !!!

    Now THAT would have been a sight to behold! I hope you're okay...although the image of you scrambling down that ladder is funny, it is also quite scary!!

    Well Sonia as far as I'm concerned the're vicious little @%$# !!! ; )

    I believe the're actually Barn Swallows.

    They nest in our out buildings and garages every year.

    And they do make quite a mess but I don't have the heart to destroy their nest or to harm them so I cover things up until they leave.

    Once the babies can fly and fend for themselves they leave.

    I'm just guessing here but it takes about 30-40 days from the time the eggs hatch out for the babies to fly off on their own.

    I have to give mother bird credit,she was prepared to peck me to death to protect her little ones and wasn't the least bit afraid of me !!!

    She was simply doing her job and being a good mother.

    I have no grudge with her but I'm staying the hell away from her nest !!! ; )
