I just had a great view, in great light of a purple martin flying north over my Lafayette home, traveling with a second, similar bird that may have been a second martin; however, I did not get my binolulars on the second bird.

I distinguished the martin from all other swallows by its uniformly dark plumage and
from European starling by the notched tail, lack of yellow bill and
stronger flight style. Both birds seen were
followed soon afterwards by a white-throated swift.

Good birding,

Jeff Acuff
