Swallows Move In

Swallow on Nest The swallows have returned and are reclaiming their home. I wonder if they’ll have two clutches again this year.

It’s time to pressure wash the front porch and put the mat underneath the nest.

    I now have 3 swallow nests and new one beginning. I really love to watch the birds but the droppings are now on the front entrance.
    Do you have any ideas on how to make them move?

    I think once the droppings land, they’re inanimate. If you want them to move, you’ll have to move them yourself. ;)

    Oh, you want the birds to move? I have no (good) ideas. Loud music? Bright lights? A ramp for the neighborhood cats? Break the nests?

    Or do what I did and put a mat underneath the nests.
