It looks like an Alfred Hitchcock movie, but it’s actually a scene from Tuesday afternoon in The Glen at Widefield neighborhood.

Barn swallows have swarmed the neighborhood where Lance Riehl and his family just moved in. The birds have homeowners checking the sides of their homes everyday, and state officials reminding residents of the penalties that come with harassing these birds.

"Moving into a new house is stressful enough," Riehl said. "We’ve got a bunch of stuff and a bunch of kids and what not, but yeah, it’s one more problem to deal with."
