Martins!

Well, it might be below freezing this morning here on the Emerald Coast of Florida (we do get it occasionally) but our most potent sign of spring showed up this morning - in the guise of 6 Purple Martins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They are now discussing the digs available to them in the yard. They seem to like the view. I guess they're just haggling over the price now.

Seriously, we got a good martin house a few years ago, with an owl guard on it. Those bloody owls could eat their way into the gourds and get the babies. This one has metal bars up. The martins don't find that a problem, but the owls do!
