May 17. 2012

We are a little off in our posts, but you can keep up by the titles of our blogs as we are using the date! Nest 1 In nest number 1, we now have 4 baby purple martins. The last one hatched yesterday or early this morning. The baby purple martins were sleeping. We predict in 6 days (on May 22) the baby birds will have feathers.
Nest 2
Nest 3 In nest number 3, there was a sparrow nest with no eggs. We think that the sparrows are going to give up
Pod #4 A small sparrow nest with NO eggs! But, it has TONS of bugs. Mrs. Campbell is going to look into getting us something to get rid of the bugs.
Pod #5 We are still keeping an eye on ALL 6 of these beautiful eggs! This is our biggest nest!
Pod #6 Thanks to Wild Birds Unlimited for giving us a new roof for our pod #6! Their kind donation has allowed us to provide another home for a pair of martins! Looks like they have already started building!
Pod #7 Purple martin nest-no change…still 4 eggs.
