ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

The Johnson County Songbird Projectwill host a Purple Martin field day on Sunday July 2 in Riverside from 12 to 2 p.m. at Railroad Park (adjacent to the Riverside Fire Station).

The Songbird Project first established a martin colony in Riverside in 2007. After moving the martin housing to its current location, this colony has steadily grown. Last year, 27 pairs of martins fledged 112 young at this site.

The gourd racks at Riverside will be lowered at 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to let visitors see martin eggs and nestlings.

Purple martins bring joy to our communities. Stop by and take a closer look at these remarkable birds. Learn how you could start your own martin colony.
