Purple Martin House

We have 3 groups of homes for purple martins. Two of them have the gourd look. Then there is the rectangular apartment look.

I was lucky, I was able to see the babies perched on the patios.  They had only been flying for a couple of days.
Learning to fly
The parents would fly off and then the young shortly afterwards. They would fly low for the most part. But when they were flying in a group, it was difficult to tell the difference between the parents and children.
