Purple Martin Eggs and Newly Hatched Babies!
May 9, 2012 2 Comments
It is so much fun to have purple martins nesting in our backyard again! We put up 8 nesting gourds, and 6 of them are already filled with birds. The martins are wonderful to have around – we enjoy hearing them sing, watching them feed their babies, and seeing them swoop over the yard eating bugs. Our current purple martin count is: 12 adults, 10 eggs, and 17 babies! More info on being a purple martin landlord is at: http://purplemartin.org/
