The Paskamansett Bird Club will be holding a presentation on Purple Martins on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m.

The talk will be conducted by Madeleine Linck, who will present an overview of the life history of Purple Martins and report on several Martin colonies close-by in Massachusetts.

Martins east of the Mississippi are unique in that they are colonial breeders almost entirely dependent on humans.

As a wildlife technician for 30 years in Minnesota, Madeleine monitored Martins and Trumpeter Swans as well as reptiles and amphibians. After moving to Rehoboth in 2016 to be closer to grandkids, she began volunteering to manage the Martin colonies in Norfolk and Easton.

This talk will be held in-person at the Smith Neck Friends Meeting House, located at 594 Smith Neck Road, and via Zoom. Those who want to attend online can do so by using Meeting ID 816 7548 6226.
