Dave —- I don’t think the Martins have reached the Amazon yet in their Southern travels.. A lot of Martins are still moving South through Mexico and heading to the Panama area.. Just my opinion..

I know they are probably still in route. But will they have a home to return too?

I heard the wildfires are subsiding.
Mite control, heat venting, predator protection and additional feeding during bad weather add up to success.

John barrow put up something that may alleviate your worries for our feathered friends, basically they travel in a wide geographical area and stay in a few localised spots. Its interesting.
