I like helping animals when I can. I feel we owe it to them. My wife sometimes get aggravated at me when I go into what she calls "turtle patrol". If I see a turtle crossing the road I have to stop and help it across. After all, our road is in it's habitat.

I also cleaned the area around the nest with the hose once a week. However, when they abounded the nest, I took a power washer to it, and I repainted the area. Maybe that's why they didn't come back
You know in some parts of the world the swallows nest is delicacy?
I am really off topic now;
Oh, well. It won't hurt anything to be off topic on this post.
I have read about the swallows nest being a delicacy. It actually sounds interesting. I'm usually willing to try new things. Especially food!
We have vinyl siding so the mess is pretty easy to clean up.
It we have had swallows nesting on our porch for so many years it makes me wonder if they are the descendants of the original pair or are the unrelated pairs that just say the potential of the nesting site. I prefer to think it is the descendants of the original pair.
