We've only had this yard for 2 months so we don't know if they return each year.

They're the only pair nesting there.

You Know swallows do usually return , sometimes repeatdly to the same nest if you don't knock it down. W ehave had a pair nest 5 years in a row.  They are really cool to watch. they were on our front porch. If we came out mommy would leave and watch us from the telephone line above the porch.. if she got worried you were to close, she would dive bomb you sweeping in as if to try to frighten you away from her babies!
