Purple Martins at MNA
Another interesting bird at the Museum of Northern Arizona's research campus. Yesterday evening at about 6:30, three or four martins swooped in and two settled in aspens briefly by the geology building. They seemed overheated(?), holding wings away from body and and beaks agape. There is water nearby in one of the city's derelict filtration tanks. Perhaps it was that water that drew them here. Haven't seen or heard them since. Wes Murry took this photo.
