Every year a family of Swallows would build their next under the eaves of our house. Even though they made quite a mess we didn't have the heart to try to make them move on. Seeing the baby birds learn to fly with their parents made up for that!
Sparrows nest under our verandah every year. WS had welcome swallows nesting in our gazebo by the pond for a couple of years but not for a long time now. There's plenty of them at the lake at the end of our estate though. Indian minors nest in our roof evry year.
