Every year barn swallows make nests in the eaves of our house or in Farmer John’s Man Shack. This year they built one of their nests in a perfect place for baby observing. They built it above our front porch. We are able to see the birds every time we walk outside & while inside through a window.
No new birds this week, but it’s been a lot of fun watching these babies grow.
We watched the barn swallow(s) build a nest & eventually sit on 4 eggs. One day Farmer John noticed a broken egg under the nest.
Three babies hatched!
The 4th baby hatched!
Mama & Papa take turns feeding the babies. When one comes to the nest, the other flies off.
The last day I saw them in the nest.
