I found this fledgling swallow struggling on the farm hillside. It was tired and thirsty after
107 degree day of first flight. Today was a brutal day on the farm for birds. We lost 2 chicks from the heat in the coop even with a fan and lost 1 to chicken violence.
So I picked this wild one up and brought in to cool off and get some water. I think the flat head is amazing.
Even this young it is a flying machine. It started to regain its strength so we brought it near the swallow house on the hill. It took off into the sky and up into the woods without anymore problems.
