The return of the Purple Martins!

Filed under: Nature watch,Sustainable Living — Jocko @ 7:59 pm

Build it and they will come! And, indeed they did – to the nest boxes now provided on the shores of Pender! These beautiful birds had almost disappeared from our province, but the placement of nest boxes through the Purple Martin Recovery Program is encouraging their return – with “our” birds establishing this year’s only new colony in British Columbia!

Sponsored by the Pender Islands Conservancy Association and the Pender Island Field Naturalists. For more information about Purple Martins, go to: http://purplemartin.org/
