Swift Depauperate Buildings

"The chimney swift uses its saliva as glue to stick twigs together while building his nest. In ancient times, they built nests inside hollow trees, and today more commonly they use abandoned chimneys for that purpose. Recently I discovered a chimney swift’s nest on the old wallpaper of an upper hall in an abandoned farmhouse. In this case, the old house has provided shelter to a new family."
