Subject: [obol] Purple Martins gleaning insects from tree leaves
Last evening I was surprised to see up to 8 Purple Martins at a time picking insects from the interior branches of a birch alongtheu water front in Illwaco, WA.

They were rather clumsy in changing branches. At times birds would leave the tree and go to their nesting cavities.

I had never seen Purple Martins feeding in this way.
