aggressive barn swallow problem
I enjoy feeding the birds up until a few days ago. I was carrying a bucket of seeds to my feeders in the backyard and barn swallows started dive bombing me. I spilled my seeds trying to get away! They have been nesting under my raised deck for several years, and I haven't had a problem until now.
I can't go in my backyard now. They even sound the alarm when I go out on my front porch. I need to drive this bunch away. I can knock down the nest, but are there other solutions? I have a wife and child. Fortunately they were out of town this week.
