Jimmy Neal is the early bird.
He contacted The Messenger early this morning to make the first report of purple martins arriving in the area.
Neal said he set out his purple martin houses Thursday afternoon at his home on Rolling Fields Drive near Union City and was pleasantly surprised when he looked out this morning to see 10 to 12 of the birds already there.
“When I looked out there this morning, they were full,” he said.
