Purple Martins in 2012
For the first time in over 25 years the Purple Martins have not arrived in my area yet. We take very good care of our houses. Each year we take down our houses and gourds and clean them out and return them late Jan or Early Feb. They almost always arrive here around Feb 20th. I'm getting concerned that they might not come this year. No starling problems either. I've asked other folks I know who have Martin houses in my area and none have shown up at their houses either. Has anyone in the southeast spotted Purple Martins this year?
