Yes, the Austin Purple Martin roost is huge, gargantuan really. I used to
live in Austin and went to the Highland Mall PUMA roost for about 4 years.
I wasn't there for this year's spectacle so can't report on current numbers,
but last year's was one of the largest due to a good breeding year for
PUMAs. At peak, it was estimated at 600,000. I have photos if anyone is

Martins may group together in huge flocks this time of year, rivaling
Starlings. Austin Texas has been getting several thousand per evening at
trees in a shopping center the last couple of weeks. Spectacle.
