Tree Swallow

I watched in amusement as several freshly fledged Tree Swallows Jockeyed for position in a small tree. It was pretty clear that the desired spots for maximum food consumption were the highest and the closest to the ends of the branches. I spent most of thirty minutes enjoying this hilarious fledge fighting, which would cease immediately and mouths would open wide whenever an adult flew by!
