Not only was today Rodeo Day, but it is also the birthday of some precious baby martins! During our nest check in White House #2, this is what we found When you look at the nest, you might not notice anything. BUT THEN.....

WOW! The martins are really busy today! We went out to clear out any sparrow nests and found LOTS of mommas staying in nests so we couldn't count their eggs. :( We also now are focusing on the Green pod #1 as our first egg to hatch. The Green house #4 pod is EMPTY. What do you think happened to the eggs? Our second graders have learned that there are 3 reasons why they might be gone: 1. The sparrows have knocked out all the eggs. (We did find a lot on the ground) 2. The martins "knew" something was wrong with the eggs and knocked them out. 3. A scout that does not have a mate knocked them out. We will not know for sure what happened but we do know that we now have a total of 48 EGGS!!!!
