Martin Colony History: Newbie in 2020: 2 pair of SY with 4 eggs each in Troyer Horizontals
fledged a total of 7 Martins

Yesterday I was watching Martin house in the afternoon when I saw Martin couple
1 leave their gourd so I headed out to do nest check. I usually check gourd 2 1st
since the gourd cap is readily accessible. I spin the cap off and find momma
and an egg inside so i quickly close it up. Also found 4 babies in gourd 1 all
snuggled together. 8) Great Day!!
