Martin Colony History: 24 Super and Excluder Gourds on two gourd racks, all SREH. Full occupancy. My philosophy is to maximize fledge % with existing cavities rather than adding gourds to grow colony, thus providing opportunities for new colony expansion. Fledge over 100 nestlings yearly from 24 gourds. Band nestlings in cooperation with state university. 2019 Adendum: Reduced colony size to 12 gourds to focus on more intensive management regimen.

Gray fox,

Go to the top of this page.In the purple banner, locate Research.Under Research, locate Project Martin Watch. Follow the instructions completely and send the completed form in. The data the PMCA is interested in is the day to day record of individual nest data that is compiled season long.

I assume you have all of that information from frequent nest checks to use to complete the required format.

Good luck,
