I also highlighted the gourd tree at Stratford Point as the concrete base was literally ripped from the ground during the Bridgeport tornado thunderstorm. We will be digging an even deeper hole and pouring even more concrete sometime soon.
We have had Purple Martin scouts checking them out at Stratford Point. The gourd tree at Milford Point was installed next to the currently populated box-style house. I have to think both will be populated next spring.
Thank you to all who contributed! We have many, many, many more wonderful projects to help out the birds at our sanctuaries like this on our minds and always appreciate the aid. I will post about them soon.
