Run for your lives! It's the bird flew!

There are some kind of swallows making a royal mess on my front porch.  I'm no birder, so I don't know exactly what they are.  They're not nearly as brightly colored as the photos of Barn Swallows on the net, but they are making a mud nest on the side of my porch light, just like Barn Swallows are supposed to do.  And a mud mound on the porch because they seem to drop fully half of the mud they bring (from God knows where).

They started hanging around about a week ago.  They would sit on the trellis that supports the porch and just watch me come and go not two feet from them.  Ballsy little critters.  When I saw them packing mud on the side of the porch light, I asked them what they thought they were doing and didn't they know that that light comes on at dusk and stays on till dawn.  They just cocked their heads to one side then the other like they didn't know what I was talking about.

I'll let them stay the summer if they really think they can make a go of it there.  I would think the light would be too bright and too warm in the summer.

Whatever.
