Today was a beautiful day. Victoria reached a warm 21 and while I was out I knew I got burnt today. I'm a typical red head and burn to a crisp any time I head outside when the sun is out!!!...and I'm now aglow at my computer!!! ;) These beautiful Purple Martins are very much protected. Each bird has an ankle band and have special homes here in Victoria down at the Esquimalt Lagoon in Hatley Park. Their music is to dye for lovely sounds these Purple Martins make. To hear the sounds they make just Google for it....you won't be disappointed.
