心緒 (Shinsho)

by Hope Doe

Swallows are very common here in Japan, and during the spring time, they are everywhere building their nests, usually outside a building or home. It is illegal to harm or destroy a bird nest. So, often people find these birds as pest because all the bird poo as a result of their nesting.
I, on the other hand, adore them. I love watching them flutter around and their nests give a good opportunity to see little baby swallows.
