Yawning Tree Swallow on nest box

Tree Swallow (male) | Hirondelle bicolore | Tachycineta bicolor: This male was preparing the nest (with his mate) and so may have been quite tired when I took this picture — he was actually yawning, not signing! Taken on May 9, 2015, in Jericho Park in Vancouver, BC, Canada, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (ISO 400 | 300mm | f/6.3 | 1/1600). Not baited, called in or set up.
