The nest is in the upper right hand corner.
About two days after a pair of Barn Swallows successfully fledged a brood of four babies from their usual nest spot in the attic of the grainery, they got busy building a new nest on the front porch. They started building on June 15.
they collect mud and plant
fibers to build with
every 10-15 minutes another bit was added
as you can see it was hot outside and you might also see a reflection of the glass as I did my documenting in air conditioned comfort
it is a two birdie job from sun up to sun down
finally on or about June 19-20 (solstice time) eggs were laid and sitting ensued
EUREKA the feeding begins July 17 I hope you enjoyed your down time Mom
Looking like some pretty angry birds there are four but it’s hard to get a good group shot with all the jostling I kept the cats away with some well placed glasses of water
and then there were three…
and then there were two… and then they came back for visits for a few days..
hope to see you all next year…….
