Dr. Iris Levin's Barn Swallow Research


In the 3 years we have lived here, we've been lucky to see Iris's work first-hand. Iris and her husband/collaborator Toshi teach at Kenyon College and each summer work on barn swallow research. 

In 2023, cameras were attached near the nests as baby birds emerged. Here's a glimpse into the lives of new barn swallow families:

Baby bird hunger!
