Peak time for observing your local colony. In addition to the breeding adults which should now be feeding hatched young, the population has been boosted in the last ten days by returning non-breeding birds. Now is when patient watching reveals active nests and boxes can attract non breeders searching for future sites. Counts about an hour before sunset should give adult populations. Earlier on overcast evenings.

SE Freehold ... likely totals of 18 or 20 breeding adults, seven known sites. Total count in last 3 evenings averages 41 adults. Contrary to pessimistic reports of fewer birds observed this year, this remains about the same as recent years at this site.
