Cliff Swallows build nests of art

-A A +A

By Horace Brown

The American Cliff Swallow nests in colonies, and each nest is an absolute work of art.
Their nests are vase- or gourd-shaped constructions that typically contain 900 to 1,200 mud pellets.
In Kentucky, these colonies can be found commonly on the bridges on U. S. 68 across Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake as well as in a large concrete box culvert on the road leading north from U.S. 68 to Lake Barkley State Park.
They also nest on structures up and down the Ohio River, including in and around Louisville.
