Winging it

Purple martins seeking a rest stop on their route to Brazil find resistance in OKC.


News

Mark Beutler
Purple martins have been a staple in our grandmothers’ backyards for generations. The birds have a long history with humans and are generally regarded as a welcome addition to any landscape. But thousands of the birds have descended on downtown Oklahoma City in the past several weeks, and are finding their surroundings anything but hospitable.

Thank you, birds!


Letters to the Editor

Kelley Steinhorn
Since I was a child, summer meant going through the season with legs and arms covered with large mosquito bites. If I was in a crowd of 500, I was the only one to emerge with bites.

Purple martins majesties

Thousands of purple martins roosting downtown get a reprieve before they continue their migration to South America.


News

Mark Beutler
When thousands of purple martins began their long migration to South America this year, the birds probably had no idea they would find Oklahoma hostile territory. The martins have long been a backyard favorite for their devouring of mosquitoes and other pesky insects, but the birds’ presence in downtown Oklahoma City also has meant loads and loads of guano.

Drama

Rod Lott
Sienna Miller looks every bit the Hitchcock blonde she plays in The Girl, an HBO original film about the relationship between actress Tippi Hedren and the director who gave her not only her big break, but big trouble.
