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
