The Birdies Are Back

Update: The guy from the Adubon Society called me yesterday and we had a nice chat in which he confirmed that the birds are indeed cliff swallows. I feel strangely proud of myself for identifying them online (pictures and birdsongs and behavior -- woo-hoo!)...and also quite nerdy. ;^) Of course, a few years ago I did date a rather nice man who was into birding. Hmm. Maybe I should take the Audubon guy up on his invitation to check out the Web site and maybe write for them.

Oh, and the birdies are still attempting to build nests on the side of the building behind me, and two neighbors are periodically rinsing the eaves with the hose. I wonder who'll win. Ah, swallows, I hardly knew ye.
