May 25 Afternoon Nest Check

After finding the same 4 eggs this morning in our purple martin nest, we decided to check this afternoon just to make sure our female was finished. When we went out, the momma bird flew out of pod #5 and started to fly around and sing! We quickly checked the nest and the 4 eggs were still there. so, it looks like the previous prediction was correct. Our martins are inexperienced and this is probably their first nest. This gives us even more reason to keep an eye on them and help them have a successful nesting season! Check back in the morning for our next update!
