Purple Martins

I am completely enamored by Purple Martins. We got our houses from my Dad. For several years we didn’t have any birds. Then the scouts found the houses and we have birds every year now. I love watching them! They are extremely graceful birds. Seemingly they like to be near humans but last year we had one that didn’t and would dive bomb us anytime we were outside!
Our recent high winds seem to be somewhat of a challenge to them. They love sailing with the winds but landing on a tiny perch can be a challenge. We have about 30 birds this year.

...oh, I love the purple martins, we used to have them in Austin but here we've found we have too many trees....
