Barn Swallow

We saw a lot of Barn Swallow (Tsubameツバメ) nests near the Gaomei Wetland when we were observing Barn Swallows with local school pupils.

Most of the nests were a lot larger than the ones I'd see in Japan and look at this one!

The local residents with the nests were very friendly towards swallows and towards us:)
Lots of them put a box or a wooden panel underneath the nests and I had the impression that they welcomed the swallows. The pupils gave them a sticker, which one of the residents stuck on their sign outside as soon as it was given.

I wish there were more people like them, who are happy to share their lives with other creatures.
