For The Birds

Each year we have the same issue...the swallows build a mud nest above our front door. This year was no different. The birds swoop down on visitors and they also make a horrible mess!

We do knock it down when the 'build' is in it's early stages, but these swift little birds can rebuild practically overnight. And once we left for vacation, they went to town! Now that there are eggs in it, we will wait until the babies leave the nest before taking it down.
