May 11, 2023 Pamela Breitberg Breeding season… Looking closely something is peaking out of the top left hole meeting face to face the Purple Martin on the outside perch. Yep, it’s breeding season every May and June in Chicago area for Purple Martin swallows. Copyright 2023 Pamela Breitberg Outside the Jarvis Migratory Bird Sanctuary, in Lincoln Park’s Lake Michigan’s edge are several Purple Martin house areas. One I passed yesterday had no activity, but these three were busy with nesting. Copyright 2023 Pamela Breitberg Activity outside Purple Martin homes. Read more here. Copyright 2023 Pamela Breitberg Taking care of new arrivals takes teamwork. A whole neighborhood of new babies requires much active hunting. Copyright 2023 Pamela Breitberg I listen for the songs of the Purple Martins as I walk from our condo to Lake Michigan’s lakefront. They are quite vocal with a variety of songs to chirp. Copyright 2023 Pamela Breitberg Enjoying their front porches, a group are resting for a few moments before resuming hunting. Copyright 2023 Pamela Breitberg Chicago is home to vast areas of open, wild spaces. Just pure wonderful and refreshing.
