Please get some crickets and meal worms, freeze them then thaw them out in warm water and feed your martins. It is not easy but we all need to do what we can to help them since we invited them in our backyard. The martins are really smart and catch on real quick being feed supplemental food.
Love it or leave it~~~Astrid :-)
