Español- Saludos. Se que hace mucho tiempo no publico nada sobre mi Birds Backyard. Quiero que sepan que pronto se llevarán una sorpresa. Solo deseaba que supieran que el proyecto sigue. Mientras, disfruten de mi creación, una casa para golondrinas. Hasta pronto.

The Martin house looks great Gabriel. We have a couple of Martin houses out too. Are the martins at your place yet? We don't expect Martins here until March.

The resident birds are beginning to sing their morning songs. It feels like spring. The snow is melting.

I can't wait to see what you are doing in your garden.

I so glad you have time to make a new entry on your blog. I know you have been very busy. We all are anxious to see more enteries showing your progress.

Your martin house looks like the ones Lisa put up last yer. We are hoping to get some residents other than House Sparrows this year. I wonder what kind of martins you get there.

This looks like our Martin Houses. I wish you luck. We had some look at our houses last year but they didn't stay. Hopefully they will this year.

While in Texas we saw our first Purple Martin. Do you have any yet?

Hi to all

Purple Martins are not a resident is a migrant who mix with other martins. We have one: Caribbean Martin. This one is similar to Purple and have white all under the bird. The martins are here in the neigbor for about 3 weeks and i'm still looking for the first one who just stop by.
There's Swallows and maybe another Martin, but i'm do this now for the Caribbean Martin.
