Recently fledged Barn Swallows
I think the barn swallow babies are stuck in their nest what should I do?
Hi Tiffany, Barn Swallow chicks will sometimes appear to be too big for their nest just before fledging, and it can look like they’re stuck when the nest is positioned high up close to the ceiling, but this is normal. Give them plenty of space and try to avoid going near the nest, and they will likely fledge within the week. If you can tell for sure that one or more is visibly injured, call your local wildlife rehabilitator before acting. They will be able to advise you how to proceed and determine whether they can take in the injured bird(s).
