Some species of birds are most beautiful when in the air. Barn Swallows on a wire or fence don't have the dramatic beauty they show when swooping in pursuit of insects. These birds were feeding above a lawn this morning, using wings, tail, and a strong wind to twist and turn and race inches above the grass. It's a shame those tails are not more readily seen.
