In the Book of Job we are instructed to, "Ask...the birds...and they will tell you." In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, "Look at the birds." So let's ask the birds, and look at the birds, and see what they have to say. May God bless you in your quest! Bill Bossman

State Capitol Martins
Purple Martins (female between two males) in front of South Dakota State Capitol
Pierre, South Dakota is situated on the very western edge of the normal range of the Purple Martin. However, we do have a thriving colony of these large swallows living on the grounds of our State Capitol. This morning I noticed that the Purple Martins had returned, and I just couldn't resist taking a few photos.
