The Purple Martin is the largest swallow in North America. The male is a glossy blue-black and the females and immature males are gray to white below and duller above. The bird’s voice consists of loud and cheerful chirping notes and gurgles. It is noted for its apartment-style nesting in man-made community houses in the eastern region.
Purple Martins have been called America's favorite bird. Every season Purple Martins migrate across eastern North America starting in January from Brazil to breed. They depend on people like you to provide safe housing.
Here's a touching father-son story about purple martins in the March/April issue. A must-read.

Purple Martins are among America’s best loved birds, and they seem to like us as well. So thoroughly have these largest members of the Swallow family taken to the multistory Martin “apartments” homeowners have set out for them that they prefer living in them to more natural woodland nesting places.
"The Purple Martin (Progne subis) is the largest North American swallow. These aerial acrobats have speed and agility in flight, and when approaching their housing, will dive from the sky at great speeds with their wings tucked."
PURPLE MARTIN (Progne subis) - feeds almost exclusively on flying insects. They may occasionally take insects from the ground. It nests in birdhouses, holes in trees and cactus, or crevices in cliffs and buildings. The nest is made of twigs, plant stems, mud and grasses. They breed throughout temperate North America, in south and south-east Canada, in the whole eastern half of the United States and along the Pacific coast from southern Canada to Mexico. They winter in the Amazon basin.
