May 14, 2012

Now that we have SO MANY martins in our colony, we have decided to divide up the pods so that each class can have the chance to record photos and report obervations. We had a little issue with the photos, but hope to have some for you daily starting on Wed!!! Pod #4-There was a sparrow nest with 2 eggs. Pod #7-Purple martin nest is still there with 4 eggs! Nest 1 A purple martin nest has 4 eggs in number 1. We predict that the eggs will hatch on Friday, May 18. Nest 3 In nest 3 there are 2 eggs from a sparrow. The sparrows are not giving up! They keep building nests and laying eggs. Pod #5- There are now 5 eggs in this nest!!! Nest 2-Even though 2 eggs were knocked out of this nest, there are a total of 3!
