The W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is pleased to welcome back Penny Briscoe to host the workshop, “How to be a Good Purple Martin Landlord.” Briscoe is a local expert with more than 25 years’ experience as a martin landlord and citizen scientist. The workshop will be held in the Sanctuary Auditorium from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on March 5.
The workshop will discuss how to acquire and install suitable housing, prepare nests for spring arrival, and perform regular nest checks to ensure survival of young birds. Briscoe will also share useful internet resources and discuss recording and submitting data for regional and national citizen science projects. The workshop includes a hands-on nest building portion at the Sanctuary’s Purple Martin gourd rack. Please dress for the weather.
