Purple Martin Nesting Update

Glenn Kincaid

This morning Adrian O’Loghlen and I made one of our regular visits to check on the progress of the Purple Martins in and near Nojoqui Falls Park.

In the vicinity of the park we believe there are at least 6 and at most 9 active nests.  We did see 2 chicks poking their heads out of one of the cavities.

Some poor photos in this bird checklist

At the ranch entrance to Alisal Ranch, there appears to be one active nest.

This level of nesting activity is similar to what we have seen over the past few years.
