I just received a question about Barn Swallow fledges continuing to return to their nest nightly well after their parents have moved on (more than a week so far). Since it's near his front door and noisy, it was of some concern. Couldn't find anything about this in the literature but did get a response from one person that she witnessed this behavior once in Violet-Green Swallows. Anyone have information on how common this is?
