Default Annual nesting birds

Looks like my annual nesting birds are back for the summer now. The eastern bluebirds have been back maybe a month. Last week the tree swallows came back but disappeared when it snowed. They're back today claiming their old bird house. I love tree swallows. They're people friendly, playful & EAT MOSQUITOES. They eat flying insects almost exclusively. In the pictures you will note their forward facing eyes. Far as I know only birds of prey have forward facing eyes. They're necessary for catching flying prey & provide pinpointing vision. They have a fierce look about them when looking right at you. When I mow the lawn they follow me for hours grabbing insects for themselves & feeding babies. ......Paul H
