Purple martins

The purple martins are still in their nesting boxes, and this time I was lucky enough to capture a pair of them side by side, so you can see the differences. Male on the left is all blue/purple; female on the right has more gray. Taken at Croton Point Park, NY on 4.23.2021

Here’s another shot I took that allows you to compare the coloring of their bellies and chests.
