July 21, 2023: Every spring, Barn Swallows return to Falmouth from wintering grounds in Central and South America. After pairing up for the breeding season, they will build a cup-shaped nest out mud, grass, and twigs. This nest was discovered under a dock in Quissett Harbor. The female laid 5 eggs and they all made first flight two weeks ago. The parents will continue to feed the fledglings as they learn to fly over the weeks ahead.
