Tree Swallow nestling

Continuing with the theme of baby animals...

Yesterday after work, we stopped to check on the nesting boxes at the Ziibiwing Center.  We only looked into three of the seven boxes.  In two cases the female bird was sitting on the nest when we opened the box - we quickly closed those boxes back up to avoid disturbing them further.

In the third box, this is what we found...

This Tree Swallow nestling was no more than a few hours old.  The rest of the eggs should be hatching within a day or two.
