Friday, June 4th Could there be a new nest?
Well, we went for our nest check and once again I am happy to report no sparrows nests were found. The nest is ALL green grass and in a bowl like a purple martin makes!!!! While I was there, three martins sang and were very social. I checked on the eggs and then promised I'd be back tomorrow. I look forward to your opinions on this mystery nest when I post a pic tomorrow!
Rain Fledgling Update
Day 12 of this terrible weather and all but 1 of the babies are holding
their own. I am fattening them up but with more heavy rain in the forecast,

Welcome to the Meadow Wood Elementary Purple Martin Blog
After almost 3 school years, we FINALLY have our first purple martins that are nesting in our pods. This is a very exciting time for our students! Each morning the second graders check the pods for sparrow nests so that they can be removed in order to help the martins. The purpose of this blog is to provide the students a chance to keep up with what is happening in the purple martin nest while they are not in school!
