Barn Swallow Couple

They arrived April 28 and have been sleeping in the rafters of my front porch and discussing architectural design early each morning. Just this week they began to build their condo. It’s the largest foundation I’ve seen yet. Maybe they’ve got plans for a big family.

Last year the Swallow couple actually abandoned their first home halfway through the summer and built another tucked up in a corner far away from front door traffic which included night visits from a leaping black cat.

Two or three years ago a couple had two sets of five chicks each and we had that big snow that stayed around for a while – 15 inches in my driveway. Coincidence? Maybe.

The current couple has signed a six month lease, though I’ll be surprised if they stay past September 30th. I’ll keep you posted.

    Maybe they are planning a huge family reunion with
    that condo-style nest? Or are they going to lease
    out part of it? I’ve not seen one that big. Will
    keep an eye on it with you.
