Winter residents?

Asked December 31, 2017, 9:00 PM EST

It’s December, my home is in North Texas. There’s a much used Barn Swallow nest by my front door. The past couple weeks there has been an unknown bird in the Barn Swallow nest. It’s filled the nest with dry leaves. Just today I suspect there may be more than one bird in there. Could you, please, tell me who it might be and what, if anything, I might do to make it’s (their) stay more comfortable. Would it (they) like an additional bird house or two?

I would suggest getting a photo of the bird(s) in the nest and take it to your local birding center or wildlife center. They would be able to identify and then give any advice you might need.
