House Martins have made
themselves at home
Every spring since we've been here in Lubbock, 4 pairs of house martin have set up homes in two corners of the back covered porch and in the front covered porch. I look forward to watching them. Their babies all seem to be quite demanding wanting their supper. These pics are from 2012 - they were the first residence that I observed.
I don't know if the same family of birds come every year or if several different birds compete for the prime real estate.
guests - house martin moved into the nest from the year before.
All 4 babies survived.
The adults taking a break.
enjoyed spinning on the star mobile. They took turns going for a ride.
Taking shade where ever they can find it.
This is not a house martin.
