Today I didn’t do my usual nature drive.
During our many days of other than spring weather this year, on one very fiercely windy night our Swallow house blew down off the end of our garage.Earlier this week David had unattached the bird house from the pole and cleaned it out preparing to give it a needed coat of paint.
However a gang of six to eight Tree swallows appeared in our yard today examing our
Chickadee bird house in detail. They signified their interest as they usually do
by going inside the house and positioning themselves on top of the house
or setting on the fence close by, such as these two in the picture above, or by making a few close fly bys to check out the house.
David immediately realized that he should reestablish our regular Swallow house for the visiting Swallows, as we had watched them check out its previous location on the end of our garage.
So our old Swallow house has now been painted and positioned awaiting feathered tenants for this season.
