Purple Martins at Valois Park

Observe the gracious flight of the Purple Martins from the end of April to mid-August.

You will find a magnificent lighthouse containing 108 condos to welcome these birds. Since it’s inauguration in 2001, hundreds
of Purple Martins have seen the day at Valois Park. They ecologically eliminate the insects that border the lake. Don’t forget that these birds eat their weight in insects every day!

In 2013, approximately 40 baby Purple Martins were born. We are impatiently waiting to know the number of births this year!
