Purple Martins 2013: First Eggs Hatch



Finally! The first eggs from one of the nests have hatched.  I just took a quick peek as I didn’t want to upset the parents too much. From what I did see, 3 of the 5 eggs had hatched.  I would expect that there should be continued hatchings almost daily.

Here’s a male Purple Martin bringing in a dead bamboo leaf to place on top of the eggs.
