may/june timeline Pensacola area 218

Postby jnich » Wed Jun 06, 2018 7:32 am

I built and installed a house in time for 2013 season - it remained martinless until 2018 when three of six houses were taken by martins

Assuming it went well as far as baby making - which I think it did - I as wondering what is going on now. I know the Martins are going to head back south soon; probably already started - I just don't know what is going on in my sky.

I am wondering why I hear Martins pretty high in the sky at 4am.
I am wondering why Martins seem to be resting from time to time on the front porch of the three of six rooms they used.
I am wondering if all the activity I have wondered about above is a mass migration from the north i.e are the dawn songs them flying south; is the resting on the porches a different batch everyday coming from up north?
Or is it the same batch that made babies and their offspring still hanging around the area?

Appreciate some insight
Nich.
