My martins are here!!

Postby Stingray » Fri Jan 24, 2020 5:20 pm

This is my 16th year and it is still exciting to see them for the first time!

Last year was a banner year for me.
All eighteen gourds were occupied and fledged 107 young!!

I'm looking forward to another great year and wish you all the same!![/code]

:)
Have a great season!
