Two males and one female

Postby 1 Ron Vasser » Sun Feb 23, 2020 12:34 pm

Hi folks, I hope you're all well! Year # 17 has started. I removed 3 poles and reduced the housing from 142 down to 72. I usually have over 100 pairs but I'm reducing the workload this year. There should be extra martins around North GA this year.

Congratulations Ron! I’m impatiently waiting on mine. I was at church this evening so I didn’t get an afternoon check on them.
