Barn Swallows.


     The Barn Swallow arrives from the 14th to the 20th of April and departs during the last half of September.

     It is found in all parts of the country except close to the city.  It builds in farm outbuildings, attaching its mud and straw nest to rafters, beams and walls.

     Hosts of these and other swallows are to be found in the Missouri bottoms during migration where they find congenial roosting and feeding places.  Numbers of swallows are also to be found over the Swope Park lakes during May and September.


The Barn Swallow. The Bluebird. The House Wren. The Mourning Dove.
