The Purple Martin fall migration has been here for about a week! They have been forming large flocks that roost together. Visit the Walmart on Pleasant Valley Rd in Winchester and see this fantastic site. We anticipate it should continue a few more days before they continue their migration to South America.

If you arrive around 7:45 pm, you will notice birds slowly gathering by the 100s from all directions. They circle repeatedly for awhile as they choose a few trees in the middle of the parking lot to roost in.

Be courteous in the Walmart parking lot and watch them quietly while they gather. They haven’t told us how many more days they are going to bless us with this spectacular site. Enjoy and shop at Walmart while you’re there. They are lucky to have these short term visitors.
