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.
