CommentYoungsters might try out water wings as they learn to swim. Here a juvenile Welcome Swallow is trying out its wings, not quite sure about taking to the air, clutching tightly onto a wire. The juveniles are distinguished from their parents by the relatively small rufous patch on the forehead, the light coloured gape, duller throat, and shorter tail. A parent was in the vicinity, making occasional swoops to encourage it. Time for it to catch its own breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
