Thank you, birds!

Kelley Steinhorn August 1st, 2012

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.

But mysteriously, I’ve not had any bites this year.

Mystery solved; I read about the purple martins in Oklahoma Gazette (“Winging it,” Mark Beutler, July 25) descending upon downtown. I live in Heritage Hills and I know now that the mosquitoes that generally feed on me have become snacks for these feathered friends.

Hooray! Thanks for reporting on this local phenomenon.
