House Martins have made themselves at home

Every spring since we've been here in Lubbock, 4 pairs of house martin have set up homes in two corners of the back covered porch and in the front covered porch.   I look forward to watching them.   Their babies all seem to be quite demanding wanting their supper.   These pics are from 2012 - they were the first residence that I observed.

I don't know if the same family of birds come every year or if several different birds compete for the prime real estate.

House guests - house martin moved into the nest from the year before.   All 4 babies survived. The adults taking a break.
The adults enjoyed spinning on the star mobile.  They took turns going for a ride.   Taking shade where ever they can find it.  This is not a house martin.
