Purple Martins back in Gentilly

This morning I had single male Purple Martins in the air in two places over Gentilly- both between Elysian Fields and Franklin, between Mirabeau and the lakeshore.

Males are usually the first to come back- with a few returning before the end of January, before the main push arrives.

There were also four Black Skimmers at the breakwaters at the Ted Hickey bridge; they have been pretty regular there this winter.
