From July to September, Houston’s Purple Martins spend most of the day feeding on flying insects to build energy for their long journey across the Gulf of Mexico. At dusk, they form large flocks and roost together in preparation for migration. For the dates above, Houston Audubon, along with Centerpoint Energy, will be presenting Purple Martin Parties in open areas near these roosts to witness the spectacle! We need volunteers to join us at these parties to visit with guests and pass out information about purple martins and powerline safety.
