Purple Martin Hatchlings at Sherwood Island

Jun 14th, 2014 | By | Category: Birding, Wildlife

Purple Martins are among the at-risk bird species whose plight can be improved with well-planned bird houses, as we noted last year in our Connecticut State of the Birds 2013 report.

Milan Bull, our senior director of science and education, has been working with Friends of Sherwood Island, in Westport, to establish a colony this year at Sherwood Island State Park, on the shores of Long Island Sound.

We’re glad to hear the colony is succeeding! You can view more of Juliet Balian’s photos on Connecticut Audubon Society’s Facebook page.
