Purple Martin Arrival

“Welcome back!” to our returning friends from Brazil.  Though no passports have been inspected it is believed that our tenant purple martins have spent the Summer and Fall in South America.  They’ve returned to our campus once more to raise their offspring.  Mrs. Sorenson’s first grade students will be serving as ambassadors for the purple martins and are studying their migration and other fascinating behaviors.  (Please don’t hesitate to ask them questions about these amazing birds) Currently, the best time to watch the airshow is in the morning just as school is about to begin.  They are quite active then, flying in and out of the nests which hang over our garden.  Stay tuned for updates on their stay.
