Online info from WBU in Ames, Iowa:
Purple Martin Majesty
10-11 a.m. Saturday, March 9
If you’re old enough you may remember a time when purple martin manors were nearly as common as bird feeders in the yards of farmers and townspeople, alike. In the past several decades, those nesting structures have disappeared nearly as rapidly as the population of martins themselves. Join special guest Dave Duit, president of the Iowa Purple Martin Organization, as he talks about his passion for martins and how to help them reclaim portions of their former nesting territory.
