Tuesday and Friday Morning
Hello to all of our blog viewers! Our babies are growing and I would love to have you come join us this week to see them! I will be going to check the nests Tuesday morning at 10 and Friday morning at 10. I may be a few minutes early or late....but I will take them down as close to 10 as possible! I would LOVE to see you there! If you can't be there...no worries...we will have pictures to post! Hope you are enjoying the pictures!

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!
