Donna H. has reported a large purple martin roost near La Grange, NC, off Hwy 903. This is an great opportunity to see thousands of purple martins engage in amazing aerial acrobatics before they settle down for the night. Remember, almost all of those martins came from someone's house or gourd rack!
We may be getting some folks together to go see this roost. If you are interested in going, please send an email using the Contact Us link on the left. For more detailed information about this roost, please see this page on the PMCA's website.
  Photos of a visit to this roost the week of July 16th can be seen here.
