A new barn swallow habitat structure will help decrease nesting along the facades of nearby homes.
Barn swallows have begun nesting in the archways of homes adjacent to the Meadowlands Conservation Area. The Conservation Area has great foraging lands and plenty of mud, an essential part of their nests. What the area lacks, however, is a suitable nesting structure.
With a $5,000 fundraising goal, the project build a new structure in the Conservation Area so that Barn Swallows can continue to nest and avoid confrontations with area homeowners.
