St.Lawrence Martins

Jim Le Blanc sent us these photos of his colony on the St. Lawrence where he hosts several pairs of martins. Unfortunately, one of his T 14 houses had 32 abandoned eggs this past summer. He has no knowledge of any predation or any other  reasons for so many abandoned eggs.

Photos used with Jim’s permission.
