Season send-off

The martins have pretty much finished up their activities at the colony this season. Today there were 2 circling around, but not landing on the housing. The adult male sang quite a bit - maybe he was saying thanks and so long until next season...

Nests under construction

10 out of 12 gourds have nesting material per our recent (3 Apr) nest check. Only Gourds H and L remain inactive. Of note, one of the gourds (B) has wet sand/pond grass - a repeat unusual action from last year. Could be the same bird at work...

Camera(s) coming online

We've got the first camera (Colony-Cam) up and running now. A few wiring repairs are needed before we get the Gourd Cam running again. Hopefully the Site Cam is not too far behind either.

So far around 6 martins are hanging out here.
