Hiking under the water fall

Our visit to Noccalula Falls north of Birmingham would not be complete without a hike down to the river and under the falls.

A quick video under the falls to show how loud it was with the water crashing over.

The hike down wasn’t bad. The weather was cool and the rain held off.

As we got closer to the falls, we had to be careful climbing over the slippery rocks.

The wall under the falls was full of these little birds nesting. This was cropped up and they blended in pretty well. My sister saw one fly into the nest. Otherwise I don’t think we would have noticed them. I think this is a northern rough wing swallow. A first for me.
