Purple Martins

Purple martins have arrived!!!  Grandpa and Gigi bought these innovative Purple Martin houses at a recent Home and garden Show in San Antonio.  Tom and his dad put it all together and the very next day we had birds!  Each bird supposedly eats approximately 2,000 bugs and flying insects a day!  The gourds hover above our garden...hoping these birds will be a natural insecticide!
