2016 Purple Martin Season 3

I no more than open my mouth and the feuding has begun.  Upon hearing a ruckus in the area of my gourd racks I found two SY males and one SY female battling it out over a particular gourd.
It got pretty nasty at one point when both males went after the female.  This is only one of the many fights that are more than likely to occur. 
My main concern though is whether or not the SY males are going to do any harm to the now present eggs of the adults or to the future nestlings.

Interesting to learn of the Martin's pecking order. Thanks!
