Tree Swallow nest box May 18, 2018. Another egg for this nest. Third graders got to peek today!

This is the third year that we have hosted tree swallows in this box. Previously we had three years of bluebirds using the box.
Very exciting for the students to observe.

    Isn’t it exciting that these birds picked your school as their home! I bet all of you feel really special to have these birds pick such a good spot for their new family. I do hope you will keep all of us here at NestWatch informed about the progress of this new family. When do you think the eggs will hatch? What are Mom and Dad doing while they wait? What else can you tell us about this special nest?
