Martin Colony History: Year 1 2020
6pairs
13 fledged

I had given up on having a colony this year , when this morning three females came to visit and stayed , By this evening three males joined them and it seems as though they are moving in. I did see two pairs enter the rooms they chose and were still inside when I left after dark. . I am retiring in three weeks and plan to spend the summer on my patio enjoying watching ,keeping notes and photographing them. I would love to have more pairs move in, but I will enjoy what I have

I think that's a good example of keep doing the right things to attract them and be patient. A double congratulations to you on your retirement and the start of your colony.
