Purple Martin

The Purple Martin (Scientific name - Progne subis) is the largest of the swallows found in North America. In North America they range from the Eastern Seaboard out to the prairies and can also be found in smaller numbers on the West Coast. They breed in North America and migrate south as far as South America. They feed on ariel insects and like to stay and nest in large groups.  The photos were taken in May 2015 in Yorkton, Saskatchewan.
