First Purple Martin Eggs of 2014



I decided to do a nest check today in all of my Purple Martin houses, and I hit the jackpot.  I’m just including one picture just so you can get an idea.  All told, there are 60 eggs so far in twelve different rooms.  I’m sure some of the counts will go up, especially in the nests that just have 2 or 4 eggs.
