Barn Swallow sitting in its nest, which was built on a light fixture

Adult Barn Swallow sitting in its nest—the nest was built on top of the light fixture in a barn. There are cats prowling below, however that does not seem to faze the bird in the least; that is where she will lay her eggs and raise her babies. They will be safe so long as they do not fall out of the nest.
