Description

A male Tree Swallow skims across shallow water on a mostly frozen lake in early spring. While most birds stop flying to take a drink Tree Swallows drink while in flight. The wake in back of the bird is from the downdraft of its body as it comes close to the water as he doesn't stick his bill in the water until this precise moment.
