bird nests

[Post to this category]

There is a pair of barnswallows who are trying to build a nest over my front door. Actually, I've draped a sheet over the space and they've moved from me to a neighbor who has soaked the nesting spot over there with ammonia, thinking it will keep them from coming back. Do birds have a sense of smell? I know they can't "taste" pepper flakes added to birdseed to keep the squirrels out....
