Pete R. (has Piper and Grits) from over in TN shared some photos with us. Thanks so much, Pete. Looks like he is a Martin lover too! This tower Martin house set Pete back quite a few bucks. Siggie is growing some gourds and I hope I can make something like Pete has below. Here is part of his email:
Renfroes, hope you guys are doing well. I thought you might like to see some more blog pics from a different part of the country. Spring is definitely here,but very late this year.Usually get my martins about 3/17,and only had one pair this year on 04/01. Then the word got out and last Saturday picked up 25-30 overnight.I think they may be here to stay. Pete

SISTER THREE,I've had that Trio house for twenty five years now and have found that by closing off every other outside door and making each nesting compartment a double slot 6in x 12in the birds will have almost 100% occupancy and nesting success.I love to drink my coffee on the front porch and watch the show.We have been averaging approx 50 pair a year for the past ten years.
