What am I doing Wrong??

Martin Colony History: Start 2009 with one pair. Upgraded from S&K houses to two Trendsetter 12's with gourds beneath in 2013. I have experienced job, pet, and parental losses since '13. The Purple Martins lift my spirits and remind me how life continues forward by flying their little selves from Brazil back to my yard. As one forum person once told me, chin up DebA, look at the martins. Danger all around but yet they soar in the sky without a care in the world.

It's not just you, KC. I had the exact same experience. I tried to search for the page on FB but no luck. Drat. :(

Great Wild Life Movie. You wonder where 10 year olds get all that energy.
