Purple Martins or People Martins?

Purple Martins are not only fun to watch, they are highly beneficial! Purple Martins are the largest of the swallow species and live in colonies. They are also completely dependent on human-created nesting structures. Here are some cool facts about these amazing birds:


1. Purple Martins get all of their food in flight. What do they eat? Insects! They are rumored to consume thousands of mosquitos in one day although this claim has yet to be proven true. What we do know is they eat lots of large flying insects like beetles, flies, and grasshoppers.


2. The Purple Martin also gets all of its water in flight as well, swooping down and scooping up water from nearby streams, ponds, and yes! even your pool.


3. Native Americans used to hang empty gourds as birdhouses for Purple Martins in order to scare crows away from their crops.
