Purple Martins are a fantastic little songbird. They breed in North America and winter in South America. February is the season for Purple Martins to begin to migrate through the Austin area.  For the past few years they swarm in and around Austin in the month of July.  Last year Round Rock was the sight of 400,000 according to the Travis Audubon. You can participate in one of the many gatherings to watch these cute little birds. They are the largest of the 8 swallow species and currently nest and breed almost exclusively in backyard birdhouses since the 1990’s. This makes them dependent on human intervention and support. You can participate by putting up a birdhouse in your backyard.  Check out this site for more detailed information.
