April 11, 2016: Tree Swallow

This Tree Swallow was checking out the nesting box, located adjacent to the Purple Martin housing complex (located west of the bridge).  Since Tree Swallows are more aggressive in protecting their nesting area, they may add some more protection to the martins.  Hopefully Purple Martins will nest this year in the white structure. 4/3/16 (Wolf.

  1. Thank you Wolf for the wonderful picture. In 2017 we had two successful pair of martins. Each cavity produced five baby martins. If they survive their winter trip to Brazil and back to Ada Hayden we should have what I hope to be the beginnings of a large colony of martins. Thanks again.
