Swallows in the House

This is our third year having swallows above our entryway — and our third year having a swallow come in the open front door. (Search for “swallow” to find my other posts.)

Once inside, a swallow seems to get confused and has a hard time finding the exit. Rather than chase it though the house, we decided to shut all the upstairs doors, leave the front door open, and go into another part of the house.

After all, it’s a barn swallow. It should be able to find its way out of a building.

Uh oh. I want back to check on our interloper. Things are not improving…

Update: I heard the swallows chirp so I went to investigate. They’re back outside (and the front door is now closed).
