Description

So far the hole extenders have done their job. Twice now one tree swallow has hatched a few days after the others in the clutch and cannot fledge when the nest mates do.

The swallow on the right side was too far behind the siblings to fledge when they did and was abandoned in the nest.

    I think the pipe extenders are so smart. I’m going to steal this idea from them. This is my first year with bird houses and I love it.I have House Wrens & Blue Birds.
