No Swallow Nest this Year.

By May 15, the Barn Swallows have abandon investigation of my Bird House.

I think the presents of group of Starlings feeding at the feeder, only 12 feet away, discouraged them. The Swallows would try to drive the Starlings away. The Swallows did not seem to mind the small birds at the feeder.

Last year the Starlings were not using the feeder.

Some barn swallows have been revisiting my bird house

Moth Clean Up

As part of my Pantry Moth Clean up I just burned about $100 worth of bird seed. According to online sources, the only way to avoid Moths is to Freeze bird food for a few days. If I had only known. Apparently, only Freezing and Traps are the only safe way to avoid the problem, More traps are now on order.

I am not buying any more Bulk Bird Food until I have a Freezer to put my Buckets in, I just emptied an previous opened half bag of Black Oil Seeds into the Bird Feeder, it had many Moth Larvae munching on the seeds inside.  I had it closed by rolled down the top and closed with a large Bag Clip. Some of the Larvae were on the outside, in the creases of the rolled down top.

Update: May 15, 2020

I added an Electric Bug Zapper in the bathroom where the bird seed is stored.

Return of the Barn Swallows

On Apr 15, 2020 I saw the first Barn Swallow investigating last years nesting box.

Three or four Barn Swallows were flying around the area, but only for a few minutes in early morning.

I put up their Nesting Box only a few days ago, the same box that was used last year by one pair.

They really like the Round Yellow and Black Nijer Feeder.
