I really do like the little critters and enjoy watching them. Buuut, they are taking over all the nesting sites. Bluebird boxes, Purple Martin motel and the barn swallow nests. They only build nests to run off the rightfull owners most of the time. They usually only lay eggs in the smaller houses that are meant for them. A pair did raise a family in the cross pipe of the clothsline. Cleaned out the bluebird boxes and and a pair of bluebirds immediateley started bringing in nesting material and a wren came right in behind them and started throwing it out. Can't be at the farm full time yet to keep up with them, just venting for now.
