Adopt one or more Purple Martin gourds for the 2014 breeding season. These birds at Plum Island have been studied and monitored for years. Adoption fees are $40/gourd. Purple Martin gourd adoptions would make great gifts for members of your family or friends this holiday season.
With each adoption of a Purple Martin gourd for the 2014 breeding season, you will receive:
- A photo of your gourd,
- As the season progresses, updates on breeding biology at the colony ~ nest building, egg laying, hatching and fledgling activities via email,
- A final tally of the colony's reproductive success,
- An invitation to renew your adoption the following year.
Your adoption allows you to:
- Partake in a scheduled round of nest checks with a Purple Martin landlord,
- Know that you are helping provide housing for this human-dependent songbird.
Please make your check out to Friends of Parker River and mail your adoption fee to Sue McGrath, 44 Moulton St., Newburyport, MA, 01950.
Thanks so much,
