    Sorry to violate the wordlessness, but what is the purpose of those? They are martin “condos,” right? But why are there some inanimate sentries perched there?

    Hi Michelle, Sara, thanks for your comments. Those who wish to attract Purple Martins sometimes employ decoys like these. See http://purplemartin.org/update/Decoys.html.
