Tree Swallows Nesting May 10, 2010

I’m am so pleased that our pair of tree swallows has returned to our nesting box this year. They are so darn cute!  They have been busy keeping the sparrows away as they get their nest ready.

Here are some pics I think you’ll enjoy. My daughter took these during a recent visit home and this is a shameless, proud mother plug for one of her many talents and businesses!
