I would like to thank my sister Amanda for providing me with some of her pictures of Tree Swallows, like the one to the right, and for all of her support and help when I was taking the pictures and building this webpage.  Be sure to visit her website on Sugar Maple Trees.


I would also like to thank my dad for providing me with the dimensions to the birdhouses and for helping me when building the birdhouses.

Finally, I would like to thank all my references for their hard work and information that allowed this website to be possible.  The references used can be found below.
