After many years/decades of absence, Purple Martins are being seen again in Garner Valley near the bridge at the turnoff to Lake Hemet. Look for a dead snag with a hole or two in the top. Nesting is suspected but has not been confirmed yet. We hope they will stay and continue to return every year like they used to.
The Desert Cities Bird Club's "I'd Rather Be Birding" newsletter has a new editor and a new look. We also will be producing three issues per year, starting September 1, 2012. Watch for it! And if you haven't signed up yet, join our mailing list so you can stay informed about all of the birding activities in and around the Coachella Valley.
