The second year colony of Purple Martins at Caratunk along Brown Avenue had a good season.
A total of 7 pairs nested two failed and The site was left with 5 pairs and produce 16 chicks.
A total of 16 Troyer gourds in place the site should fill right up in the spring and bring enjoyment to many folks for years to follow. Its the only Colony in the town of Seekonk. The species is spreading well beyond the much larger sites in Southern NE to the more prime locations well inland.
