March 19 is Swallow Day! Stars0 reviews (Do you like this day? Rate it!)

Swallow Day On this day, a crowd of visitors from all over the world await the arrival of the famous cliff swallows in San Juan, California, who are returning from their winter vacation in Argentina. They will celebrate with a huge fiesta and a parade. Legend has it that the swallows took refuge in the Mission San Juan Capistrano from an irate innkeeper who destroyed their muddy nests. The swallows return to the old ruined church each spring knowing they will be protected within the mission's walls. In fact, the city has taken their safety seriously passing an ordinance against destroying their nests. So-called "scout swallows" precede the main flock each year by a few days but the majority of the small birds usually arrives on the 19th and begins rebuilding the mud nests that cling to the ruins of the old stone church and throughout the Capistrano Valley.

Sorry, the pigs are lazily wallowing in the mud today!
