First nest check of 2013

Only one small surprise during yesterday's nest check - one female martin staying in a gourd (J) while the houses were lowered, and did not fly out until the lid/cap was unscrewed by landlord Jim. Quite a surprise for both! Normally, adult Purple Martins leave their gourds when the process starts. Looks like around 8 Purple Martins hanging around at this point, more expected before eggs start getting produced.
