First Purple Martin Nestlings of Season
Dropped the gourds today to find the first nestlings of the season. Tiny and pink and oh so helpless, but you'd be amazed at how fast they develop. And there are still 101 eggs that haven't hatched yet! Statistics say they will not all hatch, but it doesn't hurt to hope. As more eggs begin to hatch activity at the colony will increase as the parents will be working their tails off collecting food for the ever gaping mouths of their young.
