The Swallow an amazing bird

We just had a Robin family leave the evergreen last week near our front porch ,babies born and flew out of the nest. 

Now we have another bird family that built a mud and straw nest against our porch brick wall that are amazing. They have been there for a few weeks now and have begun to be a real bother.At first they were cute to watch building a nest right up against a wall but now they have kept us from sitting on our own porch all summer.

  As soon as we make a sound, they fly from the nest and continue to dive bomb us until we go away.  I am not exaggerating.I can hear the wind from their tiny wings go by my head they are so close. 

 HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE SWALLOW EGGS TO HATCH? BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY ANNOYING NOW.  
All day long 3 of them swirl around our yard and barely miss our heads. Nature is amazing, from afar...

Tree Swallow eggs need about 14 days of incubation for embryo growth and development to reach the hatching stage.

Oh! Now I think I have seen those here. Certainly not very common though?
