Good Morning Tweeters,
I have 3 swallow nesting boxes. One is new thanks to the OPAS class.
2 of them, I have had up for 2 years; and, both have been occupied.
Last month, English Sparrows showed up. We have never had English Sparrows
at our place.
I threw gravel at them for 3 weeks. They were not deterred.
Three days ago, I took one of the houses down. No difference.
Day before yesterday, I opened the 'bottom cleaning drop box' on the second
They stayed. Then the female flew in; and, promptly dropped out the bottom.
The Sparrows have not been back ('hey dear, why would you invite me to a
nesting box that has no bottom?) It was amusing to watch her surprise and
Our VG Swallows have been watching all of this from about 2 feet.
I 'cleaned' and rehung the swallow boxes this morning. The VGs were there
within 20 Minutes.
Isn't birding grand!
