Ketchikan, Alaska - These barn swallow chicks appear to be all smiles in their cosy nest aboard the M/V Lituya. Lituya Engineer Denise P. Gray said their parents started the nest early this spring and have been traveling back and forth with the vessel from Ketchikan to Metlakatla, weather permitting.

The chicks were photographed by visiting passenger Diane Burnham Church.
