See Inside the Purple Martin Colony
June 4 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
This Saturday, June 4th, join Sarah Coccaro of the Greenwich Conservation Commission from 10am – 11am at the Clam Bake area to learn about the Purple Martins that nest at Greenwich Point. Purple Martins are a native songbird in the Swallow family. They have long been one of America’s favorite birds, loved for their graceful flight, social practices and insect-eating habits.
From March through to September, Conservation staff and volunteers monitor the colony at Greenwich Point, and we invite you to join us. We will lower down the gourds (nesting cavities) to look inside and see if there are eggs or chicks
