I knew I had several nests in the various outbuildings around here, but I didn't realize quite how many until they started congregating on the wire. What you can't see is there were another 10 to 20 sitting on the granary too.
I can't imagine what the mosquito population would be without these barn swallows.
I've been experimenting with making notecards from some of the photos from around the farm. My sister did some with fancy edges, she scrapbooks. (Rounded edges on the hollyhock card at left, and the blue one on the right.) I may put some up on Etsy eventually.
Anybody want a set? Leave a comment and I'll do a random drawing. I only ask that you give me your honest opinion about them.
