    This Tree Swallow pretty much stood on her box for a full day. I have seen no Hosp’s this year. She was alone in her fight if there was one because I saw no other birds not a TRES or HOSP. Then she was gone so tonight I decided to check all my boxes.

    Any way when I open her box she was dead in the bottom. Her neck looked a little beat up.

    Here is a picture of both my other boxes. Green grass for a very small base. Loves more like mold chopped up. Cotton on the top and what looks like there was a fight as there is all kinds of cotton pieces on the ground.

    I should probably take the boxes all down as my health don’t allow m3 to get out there and monitor boxes.

    That is a dee nest. How exciting!!! I’m almost positive. They look just like that. Do not take that down.

    That is not a tree swallow nest. Now, it may be an abandoned so you’ll have to wait and see. There’s no egg under that little bit of fluff?

    Where do you live? (state) That tree swallow could have died from old age or a cold snap. Swallows are very fragile and there aren’t insects for them when it’s too cold or there’s constant rain. 3 days of cold weather might mean the death of them.
