This video shows the vast numbers of swallows beginning to build their nests in the eaves of the Discovery Center building in Carlsbad. The swallows are expected to be here until mid August, they will have two rounds of chicks before they migrate back down south to Mexico. The best time to see the swallows is in the morning and early evening, when they are most active.
