Scan the face of a cliff and you are bound to spot the gourd-shaped nests of these social birds. Found in colonies of up to 150 pairs, the Cliff Swallow aids farmers by munching destructive insects like the alfalfa weevil and chinch bug.
These birds are subject to the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and remain under the stewardship of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. They can be borrowed for wildlife conservation, ecology, biology, scientific, or educational purposes. There may be limits on other, non-educational uses. Please contact us if you have any questions.
