Scott,
Thanks for your martin postings! There have been two pairs of purple martins
frequenting the nestboxes and gourds in Shilshole Bay, but I'm not yet
certain of nest building. Discovery Park is certainly within range of the
site, and feeding ranges are reported to be areas within about 5 miles of
the nest.

On Sunday morning before sunrise I think I heard a purple martin performing
a dawn song, several miles up the Klickitat River above the town of Lyle.
Their voice carries quite a distance, I suspect the martin was down toward
the river.
