It’s feeding time at the Purple Martin Colony condo.
As the largest North American swallow, Purple martins are known for their death defying aerial acrobats and rocket speed entering into their nests.
Gathering in groups they migrate to the Amazon region in South America in the winter. Returning in the summer months they enjoy a variety of condo living offered by martin lovers throughout.
Dragonflies are a known favorite delicacy of martins and one mother was busy feeding her young. Darting about catching bugs mid-air, she returns with a dragon fly for lunch.
It’s not enough to bring the bug to baby, mom has to shove the bug down baby’s throat.
Down the hatch baby ! Dinner’s served!
