Purple Martin Scouts Arrive in Wichita Falls

I got an email from Terry McKee that her first purple martin scout was checking out her martin house. I called Bob Lindsay at Wild Bird Rescue to pass the word so he can put up the martin house there.

Now the battle is on to be sure the martin house is not overrun with house sparrows and starlings before the purple martins become established.

Let's hope the martins have an easier time raising their young this year--last year saw a lot of fatalities.

Good birding!
