The Swallows Are Back!

We have been back home in Salemtowne for four days now, and this morning while working on the motor home in the driveway, I thought I might be hearing swallows. Strange I had just looked on eBird earlier to judge their arrival date to figure out when I should put up the nesting boxes.  Last year it was on the 20th of March, so I decided to work on the motor home this morning and put up the nesting boxes later.  I paused from my work and looked around, and low and behold there were three or four swallows circling my front yard. I stopped my work and put up the nesting boxes and soon was rewarded by this pair of Violet-green Swallows coming in and inspecting perhaps their nesting site for this season. The male seems to be checking out the roof, the female looking around the door way.
