Swallow, Gorham, NH

I saw this startled little friend on a branch outside my school. I actually got fairly close, though not close enough to get any sharper than this, unfortunately. Focusing is a weakness I just can’t seem to get a handle on. Anyway, he seemed content to have me about seven or eight feet away. He should have fluttered away as I got that close, but other than keeping his head trained on me, he didn’t move. There are a lot of student-built birdhouses nearby. Most have nests on or in them. He or she probably was luring me away from a next of open mouth babies, possibly even willing to become my snack if it meant sacrificing for the next generation.

Anyway, I wonder if it’s the same bird that I saw here.
