Purple Martins Talk

Sunday, July 2 at 10:30 am

At the Purple Martin Gourds

Closest parking: Clam Bake Parking (#12 on map).

Walk on the gravel road, past the Clam Bake Area, to the Marsh Path

The Conservation Commission will teach us about Purple Martins, how they live in colonies and need our help providing housing. The gourds will be lowered and opened so we can see the nest with eggs and maybe hatched nestlings! The Conservation Commission regularly counts the occupied gourds, the eggs, and nestlings. Some Purple Martins are banded with specific colors to monitor their activities. Registration: not required
