Our barn swallows are back!

They have a permanent nest above our front door and they do us the honor of letting us watch them raise their new batch of youngsters every year.  It's probably been for the past 5 or 6 years.  The babies have hatched because I found this egg shell on the porch below the nest this morning.  They are such fun to watch, swooping in and out feeding their young.  Good parents that both stay in the nest in the nights to watch their babes.

    We had swallows when the kids were litte, living in Bristow, OK. I think my girls are scared of the little birds since they dive bombed them every time they walked out the front door......:)HEE-HEE

  2. They do dive-bomb our many cats, but probably for a good reason!
