We just had our house painted and haven't gotten the screens put back on the windows. With that said, I was doing some painting in my bathroom, so I opened the doors and windows to help the drying process along. The next thing I knew I heard all this chirping going on and it sounded really close. Yep, two Barn Swallows got in our master bedroom. I was running around flailing my arms like a crazy person trying to shoo them back out. Meanwhile I think every time they took off they would lighten their load, on my comforter, window treatments, walls, well just all over the bedroom. When that didn't work, I closed all the doors and windows except the balcony doors and finally I was able to scare them out (I know they were scared because I kept thinking, "Dude, if some giant was chasing me and acting all crazy, I'd be scared"). It took me almost 30 minutes to get them out and more than once I thought I wasn't going to win that battle.
Aren't they sweet looking
Crazy little birds, why is it that they can find their way in, but not out?
