New Gourd Rack at Orchard View Golf Course

Jim and Mary Sudds have been busy  installing  a brand  new Gemini Gourd Rack at Orchard View Golf course in Ruthven, Ontario.

The system  made by Troyer was purchased at the Harrow Feed Store, in Harrow, Ontario which sells the whole Troyer line of gourds and gourd racks.    Any type of gourd can be hung from it. The ones that were purchased were Troyer vertical gourds  with a tunnel (also bought at HFS).    They hope the Orchard View martins  will like the gourds just as much as Jim and Mary.  The martins have enjoyed this type of gourd rack at Erie Shores Golf Course , Leamington  for a few years now. Thanks Mary for sharing!

65 Walpole Island Purple Martins and Counting

Richard Carr from the Walpole Island Purple Martin Project sent me an email this morning indicating that the Purple Martins are pouring in on the island and the numbers continue to grow on a daily basis. They now have over 65 Purple Martins!

Thank you for sharing the information and the photos!
