Left) Patiently waiting...
Middle) Food is near!
Right) A parent has fed 1 of the 4 while another asks, "What about me?"
A late nesting by a pair of Barn Swallows appears to be successful.  These 4 (1 hidden behind these 3) are almost ready to leave the nest.  The nest is located at the main shelter, between the bathroom doors. (Wolf. Oesterreich, 8/27/17)
