Ontario Purple Martins Being Fed in the Summer
Summertime feeding of your martins is an excellent way to save your martins during excessively high weather temperatures. If you have trained your birds to take food, they will readily feed it back to the young,thus saving your colony from a major disaster. Similarly, if the weather becomes cool and wet, this method will definitely save them. Be prepared to feed several scrambled eggs or crickets. This video was produced in 110 degree heat and shows how the martins are in need of that extra help.
