Hi everyone,
Just curious if anyone has seen martins migrating south to Brazil and when did you spot your last migrator ?
Here in central Iowa, the last few in my colony moved on about August 30th. I was wondering if North Dakota is seeing any Canadian martin still moving through.

Hi Mr Dave

Can't speak for Dakota folks, but not a single Purple feather thru Our site in NW Minnesota.
Our 5 pair of nesters and 22 fledglings pulled-up stakes on Aug. Tenth.
We have 1 pair of BARNIES feeding their 2nd clutch ;)

Finally got some rain, so grass is starting to green!

Sides that been quiet

Jerome
