This barn is a biodiversity hotspot! Two cliff swallows were nesting under eaves trough at center (see photo below), two pairs of tree swallows (one on each end of building), 1 pair of chimney swifts and about 4-5 pairs of barn swallows inside. Many broods of starlings were also raised, but nested earlier than the other birds.
Two cliff swallow nests
The swifts nested in the shed behind the red door last year.
Last year's nest in the lower shed.
Swifts enter and exit through the small window near the roof peak. The active nest is to the right of the window inside.
Three, maybe four well fed young that only a mother could love.
Young swifts in their nest were high up inside the barn about 25-30 ft up on an end wall.
