Join the Potomac Valley Audubon Society on Wednesday, May 11 at 7:00 PM for our regular monthly program.

Members of the Purple Martin Society of Fredrick will discuss the life cycles of the amazing purple martins, including their migratory patterns, their habits when in their breeding range and how to attract them to your yard. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the birds and for those considering establishing a colony at their own homes. 

For more information on the Purple Martin Society of Fredrick, please see their website at PMSFM.org

As a follow-up to this program, Joette Borzik will lead a field trip to Chip Hussion's successful Purple Martin Colony on Friday, May 13. Register here  http://potomacaudubon.org/event-2222780
