Two Purple Martins from the colony that nest on poles in the Illwaco, Pacific County boat basin, were feeding from the branches of the birches along the basin walkway. Two years ago there were often several martins engaging in that behavior. They get little caterpillars, both by hovering briefly and by landing on branches.
