There has been a large influx of purple martin educational videos on the website in the form of You Tube videos which local landlords from all over the North American Continent have provided. Some of the videos illustrate current landlord practices as well as colony status. Others capture martin migration and martin roosts. These are invaluable in showcasing just another moment of a person’s martin hobby.
The OPMA does not endorse any of these videos but provides just some links for their viewing. More videos are available throughout the internet and the links provided below are just a sample of what can be viewed.
