A Note from Purple Martin Landlord of North Texas President: Gisela Fregoe

To all Purple Martin Landlords,

I am so excited to let you know that the Second Year Purple Martins are arriving. I was outside at around 7 P.M. and I heard the Chimney Swifts above. That is the sign that our Martin babies from last year are arriving as well. I hope all your houses and gourds are open to welcome our little friends back. The older martins will show them the housing as well. Now is the time to offer clean crushed eggshells on an elevated platform tray at 8 to 10 feet high with 4 separate metal trays. Make the trays so they have drainage holes.
