The Purple Martin is a beautiful songbird, a steely and iridescent blue-black coloured bird that spends its winters in the Amazon River basin. Each spring they fly on the southern edge of warm weather until faithfully returning to the backyards of their landlords, like those at Selkirk Waterfront who generously erected the nesting boxes.
