Purple Martin Notes 2

Yesterday I found the first purple martin eggs of the season nestled in a nest’s bowl. So far I've got nests in 22 of my 32 Supergourds and hopefully each will be filled with eggs in the days to come. I'll know more in about four more days when I check them again. One of the local cooper’s hawks has been busy. I watched the other day as a male grackle mobbed it while it flew away with a nestling in its clutches. Hope they steers clear of my colony…
