Barn House: It’s Not Real Estate

24th October 2010, Kemensah, Selangor

Sorry, I’m not selling a Barn house,  they’re Swallows. House Swallows and Barn Swallows (lifer)  were using the same small dried up tree to rest and preen.

Barn Swallows have forked tails and streamers and are more bluish than  House Swallows which is almost black. Try and  spot which is which.














  1. Beautiful bokeh! I do love shots like these!

  2. Very nice photos for comparison between the two species. Don't really like the new name for H.tahitica. I think 'Pacific' is more appropriate than 'House' Swallow.

  3. I agree Ayuwat that 'Pacific' is a better name.
