      Thursday, 15 July 2004, UC Hopland Research & Extension Center. The
      female Purple Martin was observed atop a power pole near the power pole
      with the possible nest cavity as discovered by Chuck Vaughn on June
      16th. Since the birds had not been seen in awhile we were uncertain
      whether or not the birds were just passing through or if they were actually
      nesting. With the female still around a month later it is probable that
      the pair is nesting. This is the first record of Purple Martin's nesting
      in the Sanel Valley area. The observers were Troy McWilliams and Bob Keiffer.
