Swallow's Nest

San Juan Capistrano is famous for the annual return of the swallows. The swallows winter in South American and every March return to the San Juan Capistrano Mission which is centuries old.

One of the birds confused my house (which is only 25 years old) for the mission (centuries old). Maybe it's time to do a little maintenance...hmmm. Here is the mud nest it created in the corner of an alcove area. Nests are not to disturbed because the birds often return each year. There is actually an ordinance against destroying the nests.

More history on the swallows.
