This is our purple martin colony. We are located in Florida. There are 2 gourd racks and a multipurpose pole in the center with several more gourds hung under the house. Check out our Live streaming Birdcam of our gourd rack. PurpleMartins-R-Us Colony site 2010

purple martin nest A typical Purple Martin nest at my site, composed of pine needles, pine bark and leaves.
Note: The covering of eggs with leaves is common.
Female Purple Martin sitting on her nest. This particular bird would remain on her nest throughout the entire nest check and even when the pole was raised back up. This kind of "close encounter" is what I love about being a Purple Martin landlord.
(some of her eggs are clearly visible underneath her)

2 day old baby purple martins At 2 days old it is hard to imagine

From this to free flight. A true miracle!
Another resident at my site, this screech owl has not posed any problems to date. BUT some Owls are a huge threat
to purple martins.
