Four babies fill the nest‏

Barn swallow babies with mom in nest

The barn swallow nest on our front porch is filled to capacity with four bouncing babies so Mom has to perch on one side to feed them.

I solved the poop problem by putting a piece of cardboard on the floor beneath.  So when the babies deposit their business over the edge of the nest it does not hit the porch but the "diaper" beneath.

It won't be long now until they fly away but we have enjoyed watching them.
