This colony was started in 2006 by the golf course owners, the Joseph Frey family, with the two existing Trio aluminum houses. Martins have used the site since at least 2007. An addition to the colony was started by NYSPMP volunteer David Seiferth, who with his own funding erected a gourd rack he made along with 16 plastic gourds in 2014. The rack is equipped with a predator guard. This rack attracted Purple Martins in its first season.

We intend to modify the plastic horizontal gourds with elbows to reduce condensation problems. The colony was monitored by David Seiferth and Celeste Morien in 2014.

 

NOTES
2014 - We had House Sparrow problems with a broken egg found on the ground at the gourd rack. No pole guards are provided on the 2 Trio houses. The Trio housing is difficult to check and it is anticipated that we will phase it out in 2015.
