The pair of Tree Swallows nesting in my Bluebird house are about to lay eggs... She has been building the nest for over a week and it is now lined with feathers...The Male stands guard over the house from the top of my children's play scape.... When I peaked in the box tonight, she was not to happy with me and almost pecked my head... then she sat right on top of the box at just over 6 feet away.... They are very protective.... Cowbirds have been hanging out near the box for several days and I will be curious if they try to take advantage of the nest and lay there own eggs... we will see...click to enlarge..
