[Tweeters] No purple martins at Jack Block?

Hello Stacey and Tweets

I have been out to Jack Block several times in May and have seen PURPLE 
MARTINS each time. But, at this point not in great numbers and they have 
only visited the nest gourd sites briefly before flying off hunting. I have 
seen them mostly early in the day, or later in the afternoon. I suspect that 
many times they have been hiiiiigggghhhh overhead and very difficult to see, 
but they have been there.

Be sure to listen carefully for their calls, as that is often the best clue 
that they are around.

Good searching, as this is still one of the best spots for find them.
