    Nice. Purple Martins? I have not seen martins down here in a couple decades.

    We have three nests in the overhang covering the dog run.
    I go out there to clean up and the adult birds dive bomb me. It's creepy.

    Love purple martins! I had not seen one for about 10 years until a group of us saw a flock of about 20 high overhead during a birding field trip last month. Yeah I'm a geek, deal with it.

    FishTX, have you ever checked out the local Audobon Society for field trips?

    Bushie, Love the bird house. I wish I had a bit of woodworking skill. I would build a bird house or 12. And a couple of bat houses too.

    I bought a bat house a couple of months ago but everything I read about them is that it needs some upgrades as bats like high temps in their dwellings.
