When the Martins Come Back to South Dakota

Purple Martins on the State Capitol grounds

Well, yesterday must have been the day for the Purple Martins to return to South Dakota. I saw a pair of these large swallows at one of the nest boxes on the edge of Capitol Lake, near the State Capitol Building. Two other South Dakota birders also reported seeing their first Purple Martins of the year yesterday.
