Took a video today. New record of birds for me. Pretty cool to see this many martins at once. Sorry the quality is not so great, doesn't do it justice. https://youtu.be/1blFFPOQF5w

Really enjoyed that footage, Andrew! Thanks very much for having posted it.

After seeing your video, even though we are north of you, next year we may try leaving our house up and playing the dawnsong until later in the season.

Hope you get tenants in 2020 and look forward to hearing of your experience and seeing more photos/videos next year.
