      "LEGAL STATUS: Swallows are protected by the Federal Migratory Bird
      Act of 1918. Section 3503 of the California Fish and Game Code
      prohibits the needless destruction of all bird nests. The courts have
      enforced these provisions strictly when either eggs or young are
      present in the nests. Before the nests are completed and after the
      swallows have left the areas nests may be legally removed from the
      buildings."

      Quote from Ventura Audubon Society brochure "Bugged by swallow nests?"
