Purple martins!

Oh, my, this is better than Christmas! I was outside, hanging a hummingbird feeder I'd just refilled, when I heard a familiar call. Then another one... and another one. Sure enough, I looked up and saw three or four purple martins, soaring and chortling. I just stood there a moment and stared...with the biggest grin on my face, I'm sure. Then I ran over to my neighbors' house and told THEM that their martins were back! So now we can start watching for those subadults to arrive. Or maybe some of these will get interested in our house.

I can't wait to find out!

Oh, I'm so jealous. I haven't seen any hanging around here yet!
