I heard, then saw my first Purple Martin of the year today. I spent most of the GBBC weekend working on new housing for them, with plans to have the first 6 houses up before Monday. My Martins began coming back (I first saw them) the first week of March 2016. They are one week earlier in 2017. And thanks to the beautiful weather we've been having, I'm ready for them.
