Hello Purple Martin Friends!
It’s that time of year again, when our ears and eyes are attuned to any sound or sight of the return of “our” birds. So far, two “scout reports” have been submitted to the PMCA – one from Wheatley, and one from Grimsby. Let’s hope that our birds get a warm welcome from the weather this spring, for a change!
Our next meeting is on Saturday, April 13 (9:00 am), at Orchard View Golf Course, Ruthven.
- Weather and time permitting, there will be a feeding demonstration at the Purple Martin colony. If they are hungry and co-operating, it’s a good chance to let people see how it is done.
- Our Treasurer will still be accepting annual dues ($20), by which members remain on our email list for meeting and other notifications, and for our newsletters.
- We will be doing 2 draws. All members who have paid their 2019 membership dues by or on April 13th will be eligible for both, and you don’t have to be present to win.
* A draw for a one-year membership to the PMCA (paid for by the OPMA). Membership provides discounts for purchases from the PMCA online shop, as well as 4 issues of the beautiful Purple Martin Update magazine. Winner will receive an immediate membership to the PMCA if he/she is not already a PMCA member, OR will receive a membership for the following year if he/she is already a PMCA member. * A draw for a 1-year membership to the OPMA (membership fee waived). Winner will receive free membership for 2020.
We hope to see you (and some Purple Martins) on April 13th !
