Barn Swallows

With the weather finally warmed up we have had a lot of tweeting going on, and noticed a birds nest appeared on one of the piler of front porch.  

It has been really cute watching the Barn Swallows playing and chasing each other.   They also haven't cared that the front door is opened and closed fifty times a day.   

Today we decided to look in the nest and saw that there are a few eggs.  So in about two weeks we should have some baby swallows.   

Not only am I excited about the babies to come in a couple of weeks, but swallows eat about 850 bugs/insects a day!
