I thought these marks on the wall under our porch were mud splashes until I looked closer and found them to be spiderlings (Araneus…?) bunched up together.
Although we are willing hosts to these, for the first time in many years we have no martins nesting in the eaves nor swallows in the back of our garage. In fact only one sighting so far this year of either of these birds passing overhead when there have been several flying around daily in past years.
They may be late arriving, and the warmer southern winds that are now blowing may bring them. We will certainly miss them if they don’t come.
Spiderlings 🙂 Strange about your swallows and martins. I hope they show up!

Have the birds begun to show?
Yuck! You’re a far braver man than I. I’m totally hopeless when it comes to scary, revolting spiders. If I saw those things at my place I’d nuke it all from orbit (it’s the only way to be sure).
