We have a sudden infestation of barn swallows surrounding our house. I don't know where they came from, but they seem to be everywhere this year!
These are the babies :) Now try to imagine mom and dad bird stuffed into the little nest as well. It's quite a site to see!
Once the babies hatched, mommy and daddy bird lost their ever-lovin minds! They took to attacking us if we opened the door (thank goodness we have a glass storm door and they couldn't get in, but they could see us) and attacking our poor friends and family as they came to our door. You should have seen them on prom day when so many of our friends and family were over. I thought the birds were going to peck us all to death ;) They chased my sister all the way to her car on the street!!
And as an extra fun bonus, you should see the poopy mess 5 birds can make on my porch in a day's time.
Other than that, we've enjoyed having a close up view of nature. Especially our cat Sushi. She lays in front of the storm door for hours making these crazy little noises at the birds :)
Hope you all are doing well. Until next time...
