Not a big cat, little birds. I stopped by the Port of Siuslaw on the way to camp outside of Yachats and was delightfully surprised to see Purple Martins using every nest box on the old pilings there. Martins were also nesting in the boxes by the pocket park in Old Town where an interpretive sign called attention to them and other species. I am curious to know who spearheaded this project because it was absolutely awesome to observe these birds at such close range, especially since it was only last summer that I got my lifer PUMA at Fern Ridge. A big shout out to those individuals that made it happen and the birds thank you as well.
