If you want to come down and check out some birds and do some cleaning we'd really appreciate it! Bring some rubber gloves and we can handle the rest. We use the gourds for colonies at Milford Point, Stratford Point, and a few other locations in the state. Watch for more information on monitoring Purple Martins with Connecticut Audubon Society sometime soon.
