Sorry but I couldn't resist showing you what is on my back porch!! Thanks for looking.
Beaks only a mother could love, LOL.
Sorie, more hungry mouths to feed, better increase the size of your garden.
Thanks for sharing the picture.
They are so adorable! Thanks for sharing the photo of your cute little guests.
We had a similar nest on the north (shady) side of our house one year and another one on the front porch.. After they left the nests, though, we tore them down so a whole colony wouldn't magically appear. Down here, with there being fewer barns as more farms and ranches are converted to housing or commercial property, many of the barn swallows now build nests under bridges.
They still patrol our property daily, including checking every single window screen every day (sometimes twice a day) looking for insects to eat.
Oh how cute!!!! Thanks for sharing. We have a sparrow nest in the planter on our porch. The kids have an awesome time peeking in and the babies don't stay long.
