These are not caged! Cliff Swallows are amazing little birds. I could sit and watch them build thier nests for hours. These have been assisted (or tempted) by the chicken wire that was placed under the eaves of a work shop in a wildlife preserve to keep other birds out of the eaves. These guys just took advantage of it. There were hundreds of them, very busy!
