Our sweet, little Tree Swallows are back for the third year in a row.
They've set up house in the birdhouse overlooking our garden. Their
nest building is complete. You can see nesting material sticking out
from under the birdhouse. They take their time building their nests.
I've read that it takes up to two weeks for them to complete a nest.

The female is staying inside the birdhouse most
of the day which leads me to believe she has laid her
eggs. I walked up to the house yesterday afternoon
and took some pictures of her.
