Help! Other birds trying to take over barn swallow's nest

14 years ago

What looks like sparrows have twice this year already gone into my barn swallow's nest that they built about 4 years ago and kicked the eggs out. Yesterday I saw one in the nest that had something in it's beak that looked like bits of fluff, like it was trying to add to the nest and then saw the egg smashed on the ground, a couple months ago, they kicked out 2 eggs.

This is the first year this has happened and I'm heartbroken, I love those little barn swallows. Is there anything I can do to keep this from happening again??
