Barn swallows

July 12, 2011 | Iowa,Summer

We had barn swallows take up residence by our front door. We planned to take down the nest, but we were too late. It already had baby birds in it. So we waited them out. They all flew away last weekend, so we finally got to clean up our front step. Fly, baby birds! (And next time, try the barn.)

And then they were gone.

No more nest.

No more poop. Yay!
