Happy belated Fathers day.

I did not get to go to the roost. The weather has been questionable. Not that the Martins care if it is raining, no need to ruin my nice Nikon D50 and telephoto lens in the rain though! I will make it within the week though.

I had some website issues on Saturday, which I had quickly resolved. I also uploaded a new video to YouTube. “Basic Purple Martin Nest Change” My husband laughed hysterically at me when he saw it. He is not a Martin “nut” like myself. Now if I did a video on the Celtics and the Lakers, he would light a candle or something. I tried to explain to him that many people are visual. So I made a real basic video so people could get an idea of what to do. I THOUGHT it was a good idea… Here it is anyway.

As you may or may not know. I also have a video on a Basic nest check. I have fun doing them anyway. I should make a video at seasons end on how to clean the housing! HA! Now that would be funny. Me trying to get that thing hosed off and cleaned without dousing myself.

I counted another 50 or so yesterday for about an hour. The landed only briefly and a few new fledglings were in the bunch…and they were not mine. They must have been getting the grand tour.
