Included are images of a pair of Tree Swallows whose antics caused them to crash land on an exposed mudflat a Copy of IMG_1613 few feet off the Transco Trail Tuesday afternoon. 

The pair had been engaged in their usual aerial acrobatics when they suddenly hit the mud and became completely stuck.

They couldn't move…or fly as their undercarraige was soaked in mud.  Not having a tree limb at my disposal, I turned to my trusty camera monopod and helped them out a bit.

One perched in the phragmites quite shaken from the ordeal while the other "walked" to cover.

Here's hoping that they were both OK.  Man…the things you see in the Meadowlands!
