You're spring to me
I know that spring is finally here when the swallows come back. It's interesting to watch them court and build nests for their mates up in the rafters of my high ceilinged barn.
Here, he's showing her the building materials for their new nest.It's amazing to see how they can build a nest out of nothing. I think he's saying, "I can build a wonderful nest right along this wall", and she's saying, "but this nest will do fine, dear."
What an acrobat he is, to be able to twist and hang on while working.
Look at all the mud pieces already stuck on the wall.
This looks like last year's nest.
This nest is in really bad shape! I think he's looking at it wondering if it'll ever feel like home!
