Purple Martin Nest Checks at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge

Next Upcoming Date: Wednesday, May 22 2019

Joel Martin and Ray Gingerich will perform weekly purple martin gourd and house nest checks during April, May, and June. Individuals can observe and assist with recording data, counting eggs and hatchlings, and after they hatch hold a chick. You will see birds that spent the winter in Brazil and you may see an adult sitting on a nest. The nests need to be checked quickly to make sure the purple martins are not disturbed for a long period of time. Meet at the Visitor Center on the following dates: April 24 and 30; May 3, 8, 13, 18, 22, 28, and 31; June 5, 10, 14, 19, 24, and 28, 2019.
