As the posts of purple martins returning are starting to show, I would ask everyone to keep their eyes out for banded/color marked birds. In cooperation with many of the landlords in the state, the DEEP has banded over 3,600 birds over the past 4 years. This effort is aimed at getting information on fidelity, movements, and survival. The analyses are only as good as the resighting/recapture data that are gathered. If you observe marked birds please report them on the Bird Banding Lab website https://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bbl/.
