Barn swallows, part 2

July 18, 2011 | Iowa,Summer

Remember the nest of barn swallows we waited out so the baby birds could live? Well, the little boogers are at it again. They moved to the other corner by the front door. As if I wouldn’t notice.

My friend Tracy says barn swallows are good luck. John Switzer of The Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch agrees.

But they’re supposed to be good luck in a barn.

Hey, I can use all the good luck I can get. But, c’mon, birds. Go back to the barn.

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!

Robin’s nest

We had robin’s eggs all over the place two years ago. It’s been fairly quiet until lately. They’re at it again. Whee!
