You’ve Got A Little Sumthin’ on Your Chin

So, I came upon this today.

I saw a Barn Swallow perched on a plant hanger near my front porch. I thought; he looks so calm and relaxed, maybe he’ll stay put for a photo.

Then, I notice the mud on his face. Clearly he had also been using the hanger to wipe his beak.

Oh! I think. He’s building a nest somewhere. Barn Swallows construct their nests out of mud and other materials like grass.

He takes flight, and soars up under the ceiling of the front porch. That’s when I saw his mate. She was clinging to the ceiling light. She, too, had a little sumthin’ on her chin…

I’m not sure they had an engineer and the county inspector approve their plans.
