Purple Martin baby feeding time

It was fun watching these birds today as the young ones have started to fledge. The babies are already out of the nests but are still learning to hunt for food. The parents bring food consisting of insects thay catch in the area. Within the next few days, these babies will be ready to hunt and survive on their own. This is happening a month early this year.
