    Tree Swallows are state and federally protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. It is illegal to kill them.

    Poor House Sparrows! It’s so cruel to boil live birds!

  4. Texas Bird Family says:

    It is illegal to harass Tree Swallows. Which includes preventing them from raising young.
