Purple Martin Update, Winter 2015, Front Cover

We are pleased to see the Winter 2015 issue of Purple Martin Update magazine has our sunrise photo on the back cover!  It shows our nesting gourd rack silhouetted against a dramatic pink sky (taken in mid-December 2014).  The front cover of the magazine shows a purple martin with a geolocator tag.  The miniature tag allows scientists to track the birds to their migratory home in Brazil, and thus help with conservation.  The first purple martins arrived in our yard for nesting season on February 3. Now the purple martins are going in and out of the gourds and singing all the time.  Spring has arrived here in Florida!  If you would like to host martins, more info is at:  http://www.purplemartin.org/
