Swallows are everywhere

Every year in Japan, the swallows come home to make their nests and lay eggs. Swallows tend to return to the exact same place to make their nest every year. The nests are commonly found under overhangs, often in front of stores. The businesses will hang umbrellas upside-down to catch the swallows’ droppings. Right now, the babies are big, and ready to leave the nest. I took this picture about a week ago, and you can see one of the babies waiting to be fed.
