2nd Generation

2nd generation I choose to put it because the photos I posed here of the swiftlets, I believe, actually come from the 1st!. The first it was in 2008, the first generation swiftlets built their nest and I saw it nested the young one, grown and flew off. The nest was removed by our house maid and that was the last time I saw them until many months sometime in November 2009 I again saw two young swiftlets hovering around my home just outside my verander's ceiling hanging on to exactly where the previous nest was. They were courting and hanging around what seem months. I was telling my wife three months ago the young don't do thing like the older generation do thing or maybe they don't bother to know how to bulld. Strangely after saying it, the swiftlets did not return for more than a week. Then one came back and later we saw two again and not until April this month the work on the nest was intense and completed with some eggs seen laid upon. Simply facinating and superb to see how this tiny birds survive and live. They just know by instinct the food is out there provided by nature and the only thing they needed is to work and seek for it. They are truly born architect, engineeer, survival and builder by their own right.
