I'm a murderer!!!

Get Your Attention????!!!!

A couple of posts back I spoke of how I locked myself out of the house because of some birds. Well, tragedy struck today, and it's very sad.

For a couple of years now, some swallows have decided that the spot above my door inside my mudroom was the perfect spot to build a nest. Every year I would knock it down, but they would build it right back up again. In fact, this year, I knocked it down three times before I finally gave up and let them build it one more time.

Last week I remembered that the birds were locked out, so I had to open up the doors so that they could get in. Thus locking myself out!

I noticed a few days ago, that the swallows have become proud parents of 3 or 4 babies...awwwww. I can barely see their little heads popping up out of the nest. It's very sweet. Well today when I came home from work, one of the birds had decided to venture out of the nest and was on the ledge of the door frame. I didn't think any thing of it and went inside.

Okay, now the tragedy, I had to go back outside to feed my dogs, and SQUISH!!! I had stepped on the baby bird!!! It was very sad. I disposed of the remains, and went on outside. When I came back in, I noticed that the other babies were safely in the nest, but they were hanging their heads out, no doubt looking for their brother or sister! Very depressing!!! I'm a lover not a killer!

I hope mom and dad aren't too upset that they don't come back to tend to their other babies!
