FOEN Board Member Installs New Purple Martin Houses

FOEN member David Holyoke installed new purple martin houses in front of the Easter Neck National Wildlife Refuge Lodge

FOEN Board member David Holyoke supervised the installation of new Purple Martin houses in front of the Lodge this fall. Martins – beautiful swallows who are voracious consumers of a variety of insects – sometimes take a few years to settle into a new home, but when they do, Holyoke and fellow Board member Bill Burton will forward nesting data to the Purple Martin Conservation Organization.
