Purple martins depend upon people to provide nesting structures, a characteristic that makes them unique among songbirds. The Manns Harbor Bridge between Manns Harbor and Roanoke Island has been an annual summer roosting place for over 100,000 martins for the past twenty-five years. The roost supports martins from 150 miles around. By late August most of the birds depart for Brazil.
