Sighting The Barn Swallows

Barn swallows on the electrical lines

For the past few days I’ve seen the barn swallows flying around the farm.  Twice I watched as two flew out of the barn but didn’t come back.  This morning I spotted two on the electrical lines going to the farmhouse.

I don’t know if they will decide to make their nests in the barn this year now that we have Zip.

I will miss them if they don’t.  The barn and farm will feel a little empty without them.  There is a nest from last year in the woodshed, safer from Zip than the barn because it is up high in the beams on the ceiling.

All I can do is wait and see what happens.  I’d rather they nest somewhere else than fall prey to Zip.
