As we were planting in our field area, we were observing the tree swallows constantly bothering the bluebirds, whom have claimed the birdhouse by the garden. So we decided to put up another 7 birdhouses for the tree swallows that had no where to nest.
As Pat was attaching the houses to the posts the tree swallows were watching and following him and claiming the houses. Hope they have all found new homes now and will stop fighting with the other birds. We are also anticipating them to take care of a lot of the mosquito's this summer...as well as a lot of other garden pests.
