Tree Swallow Yoga

Found a gorgeous Tree Swallow (Tachycineta biocolor) enjoying a hot spring morning at Fenner Nature Center.  I offer some screen grabs from a video showing the latest in Yoga poses and stretches the trendy and healthy Tree Swallow practices.

Count Dracula

The Flag

Regal (like an Eagle)


The Front Stroke

Rocket Launch
Here's the whole video:


  1. The contrast of the blue and white on that bird is beautiful. And what a great video! I think my favorite pose the Pretzel. :)

    I'm writing on behalf of KEEN Footwear because we're trying our hardest to get people outside and active. We've launched our Recess is Back campaign to motivate people to take a break and get outdoors.

    I'd love to have your expertise and input for this project. If you have the time, drop by the site, and put some of your favorite birding locations on the map:

    Happy birding!

  2. Iron Man is my favorite. It's remarkable how much he looks like a masked avenger now that you've pointed it out. I'll never look at Tree Swallows the same way again.
