I would like to thank the Tweeters community for the overwhelming response
I had to my recent request of where to find Purple Martins. I had tried a
couple of locations and did not find any, which started me worrying that
the population had crashed. It turns out that the population is thriving
and may even be increasing!
We went out this morning to check some of the locations and found martins
just south of the Dick Gilmur Kayak Launch on Marine View Drive (this is
where the log booms used to be and the Black-tailed Gull was found some
time ago); also at the pilings at 11th Street Bridge in NE Tacoma: at
Dickman Mill Park on Ruston Way and under the pilings at Anthony's
Restaurant at Point Defiance.
I will try to visit some of the other locations recommended in the near

Thanks again everybody!
