This is near where I found the "happy" swallows the other day - they are waiting for the blue birds to be done, so they can use this nest after them.
Male of violet-green swallows pair keeping an eye on bluebird nest (and me as well)
Male western bluebird keeping an eye out, too, very close by nest tree.
Checked on lower orchard nest boxes this morning, definitely tree swallows in them.
This is one of the boxes I set in the old orchard, where they are plowing now in preparation for new lemon trees.
On the edge of the field a few old apple trees remain, and here I put a box.
Violet-green male checking it out.
