There are martins in Pleasant Hill! I stepped out on the patio early yesterday afternoon and was pleasantly greeted by 2 ASY males and 1 female that touched down on the top of my site. The next time I looked there were more than I could count. Seven spent the night have left and come back hope I finally get my start.

Dave,
This is a vey good sign and an indication that they will probably stay. What a beginning of a season to start a colony. Best thing to do now is offer plenty of scrambled egg pieces on a raised platform feeding tray or right up on the martin housing porches.

That is great news Dave! Good luck with your new colony and I hope you can get them to feed.

That sounds very good having some spend the night. Sure hope that you get your start this season, you sure deserve it for hanging in there the way you have.
