Day 94


This is not the best quality picture, but I am so excited that I had to take the shot, through the front glass of my front door. These are our Mamma and Papa swallows. They mate for life and usually come right back to the same spot to have their nest every year. We've had swallows for 12 years now. This past fall, the nests got really large and we decided to knock them down. We were so hoping that it wouldnt' deter them from returning this spring. Well low and behold they are back! It's always so exciting around here when to see who will spot the swallows first. We have nests on our front and back porchs and we always have 4-6 "litters".

What do they make their nests out of? Looks solid.

Wow, how cool! I didn't know they mated for life, that is awesome. I had a beautiful robin's nest in my magnolia tree last year, I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will return too! :)

My friend in Holland, Texas (Bell County) has swallows as well. She said they showed up on March 19 this year which is the same day the swallow return to Capsitrano. The young birds will return to within a mile of their first home.
