Purple Martin Babies are Hungry!

The purple martin babies are growing fast!  They are hungry all the time, so the parents are constantly bringing them a variety of insects to eat.  I can always tell when the babies make their first flight, because all of the purple martins chatter loudly to “talk” about it!  So far the babies in three of the six nests have fledged.

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
