Sorry ! They will leave soon!

Postby DelmaWhisenhunt » Fri Jul 13, 2018 7:40 pm

This has been my best year yet. Three houses up and so many martins could not get a count. Must have been at least 8 or 10 pair. When I mowed the lawn they followed by several in a group. Know they enjoyed the bugs I stirred up for them. I think they will leave soon, it’s so hot and all little ones are out flying. Seems last year they left end of July. Will have to find other entertainment to enjoy my coffee each morning on the front porch. The sparrows are already trying to move in since the martins are out most of day except early morning and late evenings. I have not posted often or checked the success of my posting friends, but I hope all of you have good reports, too.
