Re: Feeding

That is so awesome! So what if you are spoiling them? You are also saving their lives and that's all that matters.

Re: Storm brings Martins

I'm sorry to all of you who have been in the bad storms but so glad to hear you all have come thru it quite well, including your martins.

Re: How are the numbers with other WI landlords?

In looking back I see where our purple martins returned on April 12th in 2012 and on April 26th in 2011. I'm watching but seeing nothing yet. It's rainy and about 70 here today. It's supposed to get cooler but be rainy and windy the rest of the week thru the weekend here, in south central Wisconsin.

I have had purple martins off and on for the past 32 years. Our neighbor across the road had them when we move...
