Seeing Purple Martin colonies is really awesome. We've never seen Purple Martin colonies before. On July 30, 2011, we were fortunate to see our first Purple Martin colony because of Wildlife Technician (Three Rivers Park District), Madeleine's note on the MOU-NET page and her additional info. "Madeleine, really appreciate your kindness, by which we were able to see our first Purple Martin colony." Also, Gary, a naturalist and John, a nature photographer of Coon Rapids Regional Park, Coon Rapids, MN suggested to us that we should go to Medicine Lake or golf courses if we'd like to see Purple Martins. "Gary and John, thanks for your suggestions."

ツバメの一種Purple Martinとそのコロニーを見たいと思っていました。幸運にも、Purple MartinのコロニーについてのMadeleineさんの情報MOU-NET頁で7月の終わりに見つけました。早速、Madeleineさんに連絡をとり、詳しい情報をいただきました。彼女に、一週間位のうちに、このコロニーから、いなくなりますので、見たければ、早く、見に来てください と言われ、慌てて見て来ました。お陰で、最後の3羽の赤ちゃんも見ることが出来ました。初めて見るPurple Martinのコロニーに感激!Madeleine*さん、どうもありがとうございました。* Madeleineさんは、 Three Rivers Park District のWildlife Technicianです

Note: We've seen seen five kinds of swallows in Minnesota, Barn Swallows, Cliff Swallows, Purple Martins, Rough-winged Swallows, and Tree Swallows. So Cool!  日本では、
Barn Swallowしか見なかったが、ミネソタでは、今回のムラサキツバメで、5種類のツバメを見たことになります。
