Cliff Swallow in Nest - June 10, 2010
At a bank building in Owego, NY, a group of Cliff Swallows built their gourd-shaped nests under the overhangs. There are about 12 nests, some of which have been taken over by House Sparrows. The bank manager was very frustrated that these birds are a protected species and they were pooping all over the entrance to his new bank building. The bank employees were taking turns on poop cleanup detail.
