Port Bruce Photos (4)

Industrious Little Creatures

The swallows that are capable of building mud nests under the bridge on Crossley-Hunter Line (about 2 miles south of Belmont, between Highways 73 and 74) do not appear every year as far as I know. When I approached the bridge recently and saw 12 - 15 swallows in the air and darting under the bridge, I figured nests had been built.

Under the bridge can be seen evidence of a lot of digging.... for mud? 

How many trips w dabs of mud would one take to build such a nest?

Busy little birds, I say.

(In London, similar nests can be seen under the Kensington Bridge, near Labatt Park).
