|White Throated Swallow|
The White-throated Swallow builds a bowl-shaped mud nest with a soft lining of grass or hair. The nest may be reused for subsequent broods or in later years.
The three eggs of a typical clutch are white with brown and blue blotches, and are incubated by the female alone for 15–16 days to hatching. Both parents then feed the chicks.

Thanks for sharing such a wonderful image that is so true and how it all should be in nature. You where on the right place at the right time to see these trio of chicks open their beaks "crying" for food.
Some people might complain about the focus or the sharpness or the movement of camera but you saw an oppertunity and took a great image. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

A good and nice picture with those three open mouths waiting for food. Congratulation. Saludos.
Super photo of nature in action. Considering the conditions I feel it is a great shot with supper colour. Excellently timed shot, what a great scene.
Thanks for sharing
