Spring Migration | Purple Martin | New York

Purple Martins are cool birds. Fast and always on the move when I’ve see them.

There is really only one time of year I ever see Purple Martins.

Spring migration when the Purple Martins arrive back in the north is the best time for me to see them.

There have been an increasing number of Purple Martin houses being put up in places in the Finger Lakes region that I visit.

And those Purple Martin houses are the hubs of activity. That is how I have been able to see these birds.

It was fun watching these birds in one of my most recent visits as the birds were bringing nest materials back to the birdhouse.

There seemed to be challenges getting these getting these small strips of wood chips through the opening of the nest box.

Photo details: Nikon D500. Nikon 300mm f/4. Focal length 420. ISO 250. 1/4000 sec. f/5.6.
