Hey PM family! I got a new phone and am still learning.
Put up a new house with larger apartments.
Update: 3-1; Scout spotted
3-5; Scout on porch
3-12; First pair
3-20; 3 pair
3-31; 4 pair
4-2; 5 pair
No nest building yet. I put some pine straw around for them. So happy to hear their morning songs. Really get loud around sunset. A pair of Starlings can be persistent, but so am I. I am not having much problems with HOSP...yet.
That’s about it for now.

What a great start to a new colony. You are well on your way already. When they start building nests you'll know they aren't going anywhere. Good luck!
