As part of an ongoing study into the migration-timing of Purple Martins, we are asking you to please let us know the date when the first martins are observed back in your area this year. Please report the sighting using the scout-arrival report form at our web site: http://www.purplemartin.org The best way to pinpoint the exact date martins arrive at your site is to use the following strategy. Make sure your housing is up and open in advance of martin arrival time. Look out at the housing several times a day. Go out and shake the pole (or pound on it) at least twice a day. Martins most often arrive during the night, especially preceding the arrival of a low pressure system. Here in Pennsylvania, we have had them arrive during snow storms, while the lakes were still 90% frozen! They can go unseen for many days during such conditions as they hide in the houses, waiting for the weather to improve. Be sure to also listen for them and scan the sky above your yard frequently. We are also conducting a new study on the migration-timing of subadult male (SY-M) Purple Martins. If you have binoculars and are skilled at identifying one-year-old males, please also send us the date when you see your first subadult male this year. You can expect them to begin arriving about 4-6 weeks (or longer) after the first adults return to your community. Your sightings, along with the sightings of thousands of other martin enthusiasts, will be posted at our web site daily. Be sure to visit it often during the migration period so that you can followed the northward advance of martins. If you are the type of martin landlord who keeps written records of when your martins return each year, we would also love to add your dates from previous years to our computerized database. If yourhave never before reported your dates to the PMCA, please send us as many years worth of dates as you have. These are extremely valuable to us and can be enter directly into the COMMENTS section of our report form, or they can be mailed or faxed to us. Thanks so much for your help with this project. You might be interested to know that the 1999 martin season got off to an early start already this year. A martin was spotted at the colony site of Laymond Hardy near Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Florida, on January 1, 1999. On the same day, John Haugh saw a martin in nearby "Naples, Florida. These sites are in extreme southern Florida, just outside the northwestern boundary of the Everglades National Park. James R.

Many birders across the country have enjoyed the benefits of his coau- thored Lane Guides. Those of us in the Colorado community mourn his loss, as will birders across the country. If you wish to send a card of sympathy to his widow, Lavona Holt, it may sent to: Lavona Holt 2001 W. 92nd Ave. #715 Federal Heights CO 80221 It will mean a great deal to her to hear from birders from across the country who have enjoyed using his books.
