It's the dancing we do Tony :wink: I would think because Texas other than Alaska, is the biggest State in the US, so more population that hosts martins....just a thought!

James,

It is still very early in the season; our martins also arrived later this year and at this time we have less than the years prior. Do not give up hope and just keep visualizing how the first martin will arrive!!!!

Sometimes I am glad I am OCD 8) because there is no "gambling" here. Predator guards and snake netting are a must for me. I hear the raccoon thumping on the deck in the middle of the night and have caught several snakes in the netting. I compare it with human friends we invite to our home....we want...

TOOOT TOOOT, I always loved your video Larry and the way this winter is going I think many martins need supplemental feeding and many new landlords do not know how to get the little guys to eat.

Your video is a great teaching tool...TOOT TOOT :wink:

Thank you all again for your kind words; the martins are very special to us and we are so happy that they learned how to take supplemental food.

Unfortunately, the little girl did not make it....she perked up last night but was gone this morning. Lynn just buried her. RIP little one :cry:

Today comes the sad part....after half of the migrating martins leaving and the other half looking better there was some brief happiness, until a few more new migrants came in. One of the SY females looked awful and we tried to get her all day, but she was on the boat close to the water and we were ...

They were eating all day long...coming and going. I still have some that are not ready yet.....maybe tomorrow. We had one ...
