      EVENT DETAILS
      Sussex Bird Club | Purple Martins

      This monthly meeting of the Sussex Bird Club features a presentation on purple martins by Joel Martin, a member of the Purple Martin Conservation Association, who has been tending to Purple Martin colonies for over 25 years. He will speak on his experiences with these remarkable birds.
      Purple Martins are North America’s largest swallow. In their eastern range, they rely exclusively on human-made nesting boxes. These gourd-shaped hanging structures are a familiar sight in many local yards and farms. Practically no other wild animal in North America has such a close association with and dependence upon humans.
      The Sussex Bird Club and the Lewes Public Library are partnering on the community-wide initiative Lewes Loves Books, a One Book One Community program.
      No registration is required and walk ins are welcome.

      Cost: Free -
