Today at the TCAAP WVA, I Saw A Purple Martin

A couple years ago an eagle scout put up a purple martin hotel at the TCAAP Wildlife Viewing Area. Since then, the tree swallows have nested there. This year is no different. The tree swallows took over one of the room in the hotel over a month ago.

Today is the first time I saw a purple martin in the area. This martin flew around in circles while the tree swallows (and a couple barn swallows) harassed it for a good hour or so.
