My Purple Martins are in.


Saw the first of the year this morning. Two males and one female. Anyone else?

Dad is obsessed with his. He gets about 50 coming back every year in his bird hotel. I was sitting on the patio watching them through his air rifle scope one day when he walked out and flipped thinking I was gonna shoot one.

It's odd they they never showed up. Some years I have fewer than others, but they always come back.

Yeah, bothered me. any thoughts as what to do? I did tweak the house and repaint, it was in need. Also cleaned the insides. Did I screw the pooch doing what I did?

Mom called me said somebody gave her some old gords. Guess I'm doing that this weekend for her.
