Avian squatters at the end of Europe

10,000 Birds

The Cuckoo Cuculus canorus has a bad reputation because of its habit of laying its eggs on the nests of other birds, who then raise their young. But in south-west Europe there is a bird that kicks out the sitting tenants and takes over the nest altogether. The White-rumped Swift Apus caffer , a tropical African breeding species, was only discovered breeding in Europe in the 1960s.

My plan was to replace the vent as soon as they leave. Problem is my hot tub is getting delivered next week which is to be installed right below the vent which would prevent me from getting up there.

Wagbachniederung in Late Spring

10,000 Birds

The weather around Bonn was unpredictably volatile in May, with some extremely sunny days followed by a series of cold and wet ones. This made being outside rather tricky, and I got me caught in the rain by surprise several times. I guess it’s normal for weather to change unexpectedly (and for the various rain radars to be inaccurate), but leaving office on a sunny afternoon and getting home 15 minutes later drenched to the bone seems somewhat unusual.

What to do with a dead bird in the nest?

Reddit Animals

I have a nest swallows with babies in my patio and one of the parents has unfortunately died. The dead parent is still in the nest next to the babies, should I remove it? I would use gloves of course. I'm worried about the bird rotting causing harm to the babies. The other parent is still tending to the nest and feeding the babies so I don't think I want to do anything with them.
