CommentLarge numbers of Fairy Martins in this location. The parent bird would fly past and stuff food into the perched juvenile's mouth without landing. This behaviour was in contrast to Welcome Swallows I saw in the area where feeding took place entirely in the air. This is a relatively heavy crop but I thought it made a nice scene.
