Mud 'n Mouth

    Photographed in the Bear River MBR, Utah.

    The Barn Swallow is a bird of open country which normally uses man-made structures to breed and consequently has spread with human expansion. It builds a cup nest from mud pellets in barns or similar structures and feeds on insects caught in flight. (Wikipedia)
