A few days ago I read that purple martins chased squirrels when they felt like it. Now, that was interesting to me. That meant these birds had speed in flight and could make sudden turns.
Purple martins are able to start out high in the sky, head down with their wings closed and land perfectly. That’s talent.
Purple martins are members of the swallow family.
