I'm going to demonstrate how to build a

barn swallow nuts now barn swallows are

beautiful birds that have a glistening

blue foliage and a forked tail and

they're actually quite widespread across

the globe in fact they occupy all

continents except for Antarctica now in

our hemisphere they tend to spend the

winter in South America and they migrate

up to North America and Canada in the

summer where they breed and while

swallows are certainly friends of the

gardener to eat a lot of insects and

flies particularly they can be a little

pissed if where they build their nests

and oftentimes they build them under the

eaves of a house and quite frequently

around entrances because they'll take

advantage of lights and other structures

a good friend of mine has a swallow nest

right by their doorstep every year and
