Purple Martin egg update

Things are going well at Gazebo Phil's Martin Acres by the Sea. As of today the Purple Martins in the gourd with the camera have five eggs. That may not be the final number as one egg was added today. How many do you think we will end up with? Have a look at the eggs in the screen capture below.

Please follow along with all of the action regularly. We have had so much going on this spring including gourd battles to non-breeding pair confusion to difficult weather hampering their lives. Every day we learn something new about these magnificent swallows. Connecticut Audubon Society will regularly update the right column of the page with Gazebo Phil adding in his information and thoughts in the left column. We encourage to read what is there now to learn what we as an organization are doing to help the threatened Purple Martins.
