Purple Martins Seminar Cancelled

Out of an abundance of caution the ORWMA Purple Martin seminar schedule for tomorrow Saturday, March 14, has been cancelled.

Bert Stiplecovich (713-540-2378  brs@brs.net) has agreed to cancel and hopes that we contact him for another chance to present the Purple Martin event again. March/April is when you need to get your Purple Martin houses up. He wants to let everyone know that if you are interested in getting set up for this season’s  Purple Martins, you are more than welcome to contact him by phone or email and he will be more than happy to assist you or send to you by email any information needed.

Purple Martins Seminar

Purple Martins

Did you ever want to know about Purple Martins? Why do the call them purple when they are not purple? When and where do they migrate? Where do they breed? What are they know for? What do they do when approaching their nesting site?

If you ever wanted to know about Purple Martins, come join us March 14th at 9 am at the Community Center. We will have a guest speaker to answer all your questions. We will also have coffee and donuts along with ORWMA caps and Tee shirts for sale. Hope to see you there.
