    My brother-in-law in Sweetwater, Texas warned me a couple of weeks ago he had Scouts at his place. We now have the sky full of Purple Martins here at Memphis, Tennessee.

    Folks uf ya haven't gotten you houses cleaned out and up ya better get it done fast. They are looking for nesting places now.

    I had to google Purple Martins to see what they were. Neat birds. Cant wait for the hummingbirds myself.

    Finally...spring has sprung! Well, we still have snow in the forcast, but it was 75 today, and I saw the first robin. Love it when the birds come back. I don't have a martin house, but I definantly need to put up a hummingbird feeder. Those little boogers attack the wind chimes.:embarassed::smile2:

    Nest are clean and ready. Holes plugged to keep the other birds out. Usually start out with just 4 open until the main flock arrives.
