Purple Martins were present at both Scatter Creek Wildlife Area and West
Rocky Prairie wildlife area when I visited recently. I suspect they are
nesting at both locations, in natural cavities. I know this information
isn't the least bit useful to someone wanting to get up close to the birds.
Still, I thought I'd share because I think it's significant that martins
seem to be steadily increasing in more natural habitats away from large
water bodies like Puget Sound. The species seems to be increasingly
independent of nest structures put out by people.
