Out trusty Purple Martin "scout" just chased off an American Kestrel that was sitting in a Birch tree near the nature center and is now checking out each of the gourds.He's already defending his territory. Be sure to stop by the park and check out our Purple Martins!

Thank you Chris Kostpoulos,park staff, and James Beschle,park supervisor for your help. The new pole and 12 gourds,generously funded by a COA minigrant , will be installed next week for a total of 36 houses.We are excited and ready for our Purple Martins to return. Anyone interested in helping to monitor the martins can contact me directly.
