tree swallow nest

Many of you wrote to tell us our birdhouse residents are Tree Swallows, and are on the desirable list of possible tenants.

And these sweet creatures have deposited 4 eggs in their nest. And while she is away collecting food, she covers the eggs with a feather, which is just too sweet for words.
