Nest Box Placement
- Mount the shelf on a building in a sheltered site, under the eaves or soffits, or over a light fixture.
- Do not mount the shelf near an active doorway (swallows will defend the nest against passersby).
- Swallows must have a source of mud nearby. You can make a mud puddle with a garden hose for them if necessary.
