The purple martin house goes UP

Here we go. Time to try a third season to start our martin colony. These time, we're trying decoys. Scouts are arriving daily in Texas, according to the Purple Martin Conservation Association's Scout Arrival Study. Wish us luck!

UPDATE MARCH 11, 2011–Carrol Fuchs called me today and told me that HIS MARTINS HAD JUST ARRIVED! Still keeping our fingers crossed!

It is starting to feel like SPRING! Maybe this will help to bring your Purple Martins to their NEW home! Don't give up trying, they just might be on their way!! Great job with getting your house up... best of luck. dzh

Thank you! I'm hoping OH SO MUCH!! We've had them stop by the two previous years, but no one moved in.
