It has been a long week of rain, rain, and more rain! We worried about the little babies and unhatched eggs, but could not do any nest checks because as a result! We did make 1 attempt on Wednesday and discovered a couple of babies that had not survived. :( After removing them and then stepping in LOTS of mud, we decided to wait until today. May 30, 2014 Our nest check was VERY exciting! Here are some amazing pictures! We even were able to see a baby hatch!
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!
