An ASY male arrived just as the rain ended around 9:00am. He ate 3 or 4 crickets offered. To anyone down south who may have fed him I thank you very much.

Hi Craig,

It's great to know you are off and running. There should be many more coming--we are seeing steady migration through south Texas. We had 18 extras passing through yesterday evening and are seeing some migrants every day. I hope your year is a great one.

Thank's Darryl, Dawn, and John. With sunny and warmer weather for the next couple of days there should be more martins arriving. He won't be alone for long.
