El tiempo esta volando!

– 8 nests successfully fledged

– Only 1 nest with four chicks, the rest with either 2 or 3

– After two months of inactivity, rats have invaded 5 nest boxes and killed off the female adult in each, including the chicks or eggs she was protecting.  We’ve installed a lethal response that will hopefully yield good results.

– We enjoyed a visit from Eladio Fernandez whom accompanied us into the field and hopes to return with photography equipment capable of catching swallows in flight in the near future

– Plan to build the first of a new design of nest boxes tomorrow with larger roof and smaller volume of internal space.  300 more coming after that before next field season.

– oh yeah, the Jeep broke a few more times as well
