This guy struck a pose for me. Male Martins look so proud! He and his mate raised for babies this season! Hope to see him next season!

Thank you DakotaLady! I really enjoyed my first season with our Martins. I am so looking forward to next season! We only had 2 pair this year and fledged 7, however, we had a lot of lookers and "pairs" trying out gourds in the last week. Maybe they will come to our site next year also. Live in hope right?

Thanks again!
