This AM, 8/4/07, I was quit pleased that you showed a radar loop of Purple Martins leaving their roosting sites. I use the radar daily this time of year for roost hunting. I have seen the Manns Harbor roost many times, and to see one in person is amazing.

MIKE MOSS SAYS: Sandy, Glad you enjoyed seeing the loops I showed the other morning. In case you're interested, I had also posted a "WeatherCenter Blog" entry about the Purple Martins and their radar "roost rings" a couple of weeks ago, that you can see at

You also sent along a link to your website with some radar loops and video that shows the activity at the Mann's Harbor roost. For others who might be ineterested in learning more or seeing those products, just visit
