I am very concerned. It is the end of September and I am in RI. I am still hearing PM calls. Usually evening around 6-6:30. They should be long gone. Please all information would be helpful. I’m worried....

This season has seen later than normal migration and also visitors from further north. In addition, the sound you are hearing may not be that of a purple martin. It is an easy mistake to misidentify by sound alone. So, in a nut shell no need to worry. I hope this settles your mind and worries.
Mite control, heat venting, predator protection and additional feeding during bad weather add up to success.
