Checking in on our tree swallows on July 4. The swallows had some excitement in the afternoon, a male kestrel repeatedly tried to get into the swallow's box. Not sure if the swallows managed to drive him off, or if the hole was too small for him to get in. Either way, the chicks were not harmed.
This morning, we've got a hairy woodpecker feeding two fledglings from the suet feeder and five catbird fledglings in the yard.
