Swallows nesting in our front porch

A pair of swallows are raising three chicks in a nest close to our front door. The heads and beaks of two of them are just visible in these photos,
but the third, on the left, seems a bit more shy.

I took the photos hastily so as not to frighten the birds, so they're not so outstanding. Perhaps I'll have better luck next time!
It would be wonderful to catch a parent feeding them!

A parent bird was there when I opened the front door today, but
disappeared as soon as I went out, and didn't return while
I remained outside.
The little ones got suspicious too, so I gave up after taking
this one photo.
