    Another beauty Kathy. I have never seen these birds fighting. We had many swallows around our home and they use to build their nests on the brick walls and make an absolute mess of the place. I then had rubber snakes hanging from places where they built their nests and this chased them away.

  • thanks so much, I couldn’t believe they were fussing at each so much, about where to land, and their was plenty of room to land
