An Executive Decision Has Been Made!

The swallows have decided, and in the last twelve hours half a nest is finished. They chose to build just outside our front door, beside a column that supports the porch. They're building on a little doo-dad decorative division between the roof of the porch and the roof of the breezeway. They are literally five feet from our front door, which is used a lot because we don't really have a back door (long story...) The little swallows must feel pretty comfortable with us! Talk about birds eye view! The construction of their nest is quite incredible - it's just mud and straw and sticks, plastered to the wood siding! And it comes together quite quickly. Hopefully, we'll be spying on babies, soon!
