Between Canada Day (July 1st) and today, the 4th of July, people have wanted to get rid of Barn Swallows on both sides of the border. Non-fans of Barn Swallows live in places including:
Tulsa, Oklahoma; Ettrick, Wisconsin; Regina, Saskatchewan; Little Rock, Arkansas; Syracuse, New York; Utica, New York; Surrey, British Columbia; Donnybrook, North Dakota; Bismarck, North Dakota; Perham, Minnesota; Lubbock, Texas; Miller, Missouri.
A widely-annoying bird! And a common thread tying two great nations together.
