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.
