Tree Swallows

I'm always thrilled when the swallows return! Well, today the tree swallows returned and were checking out one of the nesting boxes! (Unfortunately, it's a bluebird house and the bluebirds want it too).
I find the tree swallows so beautiful! Their color is an iridescent midnight blue with white on the chest. They nest in holes in trees and in bird houses.

Yes, the sparrow has found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even your altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God. Psalm 84:3
