Did my 3rd nest check of the year and found 1 egg and several more with green leaves in them. I still have a total of 14 birds now more males than females. But I’ll check one day next week and hopefully find a few more eggs in multiple gourds. Have a great year all.

Congratulations. I hope the best to you and your birds this season. I have a nest of nestlings that will be ready to fledge next Saturday and more after that. Busy season but well worth it. I love it.

Brent you must live really far south to already have chicks that are ready to fledge.
