Lois and I have had a martin house plus gourds on our property for several 
years.  We got Starlings and Tree Swallows.  

On Wednesday Lois saw a Purple Martin as she walked to the mailbox.  I have 
since also been threatened by two Martins as they flew over my head.   I'm not 
sure what they were saying, but think it was a warning that I was in their 
territory.  I was walking back up the driveway and think perhaps we have our 
first Martin family nesting or babies on the ground.
