Barn Swallow Nests in Greenville, SC

Barn swallows rely on buildings for nesting, and these swallows found a suitable nesting location in a riding ring on a horse farm. The barn swallows droppings were causing issues. Swallow droppings can spread diseases and damage structures. Adult swallows remove their babies’ waste to avoid attracting predators. However, as young swallows mature, they begin to defecate over the edge of the nest.
