Purple Martin Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: Not many species are more associated with a human presence than Purple Martins.  Most nest in nest boxes, in and around nest boxes are the only places I've seen them in South Dakota.  These photos are all from a series of nest boxes on the edge of Hartford, South Dakota.
