Tree Swallow Being Fed in Nest Box

When I first arrived to the nature preserve last week there were tree swallows (Tachycineta bicolor) everywhere. There are several nest boxes set up near the front entrance to the trails, where you could hear the nestlings chirping for food. I found one which was old enough to sit up at the entrance of the box and call for its mother to bring it food. I got this quick video of the baby getting fed, although it was a little bumpy – I will definitely be using my tripod for future videos.
