Hi guys. I’ve got an update on the swallow situation for you. Unfortunately, it appears they’ve built their nest on top of the light again. They must have done it really quick. The mom said maybe she could get up there and remove it, but she thought that seemed a little cruel…besides she’s afraid she might get attacked. So it looks like another summer of dive-bombing birds and poop on the deck.
And the mourning doves that I showed you a couple of weeks ago have built a nest some place too…though we don’t know where yet. They’ve been hanging around on the deck a lot which usually is an indicator that their nest is close by. I hope they didn’t use the gutter like those ones last year. That nest didn’t make it.
But best of all…I’m happy to report that we now have baby swans! They showed up about a week or so ago.
If you remember, a baby swan is called a cygnet. It’s gonna be fun watching them grow up.
Whew! All this bird watching is exhausting! Time to get my snooze on.
