We have Cliff Swallows beginning their annual nest building under the eaves of our house. How I like to watch them!
We get Say's Phoebes around our house, but that's it. I miss the Eastern Phoebes from home, and in San Diego we saw Black Phoebes everywhere - I love them!
If you'd like to try to attract phoebes and swallows to your yard, here are some plans for the appropriate structures. Good luck!
