A Purple Martin Landlords life is a dicotomy. Your life is seperated not by weekdays and weekends, not by day and night but by martin season or not martin season. And life is OH SO DIFFERENT when they are not around. The martins fly to Brazil for their vacation and I get mine too. No hawk patrols. No nest checks. No worries! A nice time to relax-take a vacation. Why not, it’s not like I have to be home to make sure they are all accounted for. But much like a day away from your kids…soon the memories of tantrums and fights fade and you long for the sweet torture again. And that is life now. Sweet torture. Glancing out at the housing AT LEAST every hour. Sometimes while in conversations. I guess guys have been positioning their mates so that they still have a view of the ball game. So while the martins are here I do it too. “No, thats my seat. It has got the view of both poles.”
