Barn Swallow is abundant and widely distributed swallow species in the world. It breeds all over the Northern Hemisphere. They winter in much of the Southern Hemisphere.
- At one time they built their nests in caves, but now they build them in human made structures. A few still build in caves.
- At times a unmated male may kill the nestlings of a nesting pair. His actions often may break up the pair. Then give him a chance to mate with her then.
They eat flies of all types. The flies make up the majority of their diet. Along
with beetles, bees, wasps, ants, butterflies, moths, and other flying insects.
they clean out old feathers and add new mud to the nest’s rim.
Time for a 4-wheel run with Randell, Valma and DesertDale, on his KTM.
