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

I have had both SY and ASY visitors the past few days but today they circled the house
vocalizing and hovering the gourd with nestlings. I decided to open a few cavities so
they started to check out my place. But All of that wasn't enough for the young ones
to take their 1st flight. After 5 hrs. of fun it started to rain. The visitors left and the
little one fledged. Flew a few hrs. while it rained with mom and dad. Can't wait to
see if any of the visitors return tomorrow. A few seemed to perch together. 8)
