Almost immediately after their babies fledged, mom was back brooding on the nest with clutch #2. All I could ever see was the tip of her tail. One month after the first babies fledged, I found mom and dad sitting on the railing again. Got this glamour shot of mom. She has a more rounded head, is larger than dad and the markings under her neck are different. She is quite pretty. Random barn swallows, I can't tell gender but I know this pair well.
