Twin Barns at Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge



Here is the trail that leads from the parking lot and goes out to the Twin Barns.  There is a wooden boardwalk (part of the Twin Barns Loop Trail) that parallels this.  The geese here are so friendly!   I got really close to one and got a photo of its feet:

I saw a couple of Great Blue Herons.  There was a child who was so excited to tell me that there was one along the path.

There were also a bunch of American Coots in the waterland next to the path:

There were lots of Tree Swallows flying around the barns.   Usually they are hard to photograph because they fly so fast, but they were landing on the barn.  I got this photo:

Aren’t they beautiful?  I love their violet and green colors.  I wonder if they are going to make nests on the barn.  I will be going back to see!
