Ellis Bird Farm Blog
Morning with the Martins, held this past Sunday and Monday, was co-hosted by EBF's Myrna Pearman and Del McKinnon of the Purple Martin Conservancy in Ponoka. Del has an amazing knowledge of Purple Martins and he and his wife Debra have been instrumental in mentoring other martin keepers in Alberta and beyond. They have overseen the development of the huge EBF colony. Thanks to the McKinnons for sharing their Purple Martin wisdom and to all our visitors who joined us for two very special mornings to enjoy these beautiful birds.
