Burung Layang-layang – Glossy Swiftlet at my porch

This Glossy Swiftlet couple roosting on my front porch for the past one week. If not for the stains of drooping at my shoes, sure I didn’t notice it up there. They start to cling their small short legs onto the vertical wall at 7.15pm and out and about by 6.30am.
I notice they are in the process of building a nest. I’m in a dilemma now, whether to let the swiftlet continue their activity (and have a photography session) or destroy the early nest because of waste /pollution.
My wife grumbling having to wash the garage every day. She told me to get that shit away!.
I have to find the solution fast.

  1. Please dont move them on Tabib, it will make for some more great pictures for those of us that dont have these swiflets

  2. Easy solution Tabib move the wife out,put some paper or plastic on the floor and everything will be OK. happy birds happy Tabib without his wife nagging. and happy people can watch the proceedings of nesting in Tabibs porch,
