Mother Barn Swallow decided to use one of the corners of the carport for her birthing location this spring. She dutifully built the nest of twigs, grass and mud to provide a warm confortable bed for her. After laying four eggs and waiting the appropriate amount of time - which was about 3 weeks (I believe) the wee ones were hatched. They stayed in the nest about seven to ten days before flying off to the wild blue yonder. This was taken the day before their flight into the big wide world.
