Grant Boyko is our newest member of the Iowa Purple Martin Organization and he is doing great things in the purple martin world. I have posted pics for everyone to see at our www.iamartin.org website. Grant chose to make a beautiful T-14 and place it at his high school here in Iowa. I'm very proud of Grants ambition and choice to get involved with martins. It is a breath of fresh air to see our younger generation taking an interest in nature and specifically purple martins. This was Grants Eagle Scout project and it was a learning experience along the way. Please vist the Iowa website to see his progress from beginning to end.
Mite control, heat venting, predator protection and additional feeding during bad weather add up to success.
