  1. Oh, I like Purple Martins. Maybe they don’t migrate in your area but there is some fascinating info on migration. One summer I watched the scientists band them and attach geo-locators to them here in Alberta to track them on migration. Some, I am not saying all, travel thousands of miles, even recorded some as far south as Brazil. They can cover about 100-200 miles a day. Check out the following link: https://www.purplemartin.org/research/20/geolocators-and-gps/ or google Purple Martin migration map.

    • You are right about the purple martin’s extensive migration. Thank you for the tip on the link, which I visited already. very interesting. πŸ™‚
