  2. Looking at old pictures I came across this one. When on vacation at the beach in North Carolina, there was a purple martin who likely had been kicked out of the nest. He was on the ground and not doing so well. For the next few days I fed and played with him. He disappeared for a few days and I suspected he probably died. But instead he made an appearance on our last morning as we were packing up, and he looked so strong! Made me so happy.
