A lot of people may not be aware of this but Purple Martins live in a monarchial society. It's of course rather difficult to determine which of the birds are the royalty but here is a possible test you can make. Next time you're getting ready to fly with them tape some thin apple slices to the wing of your plane. Then when you are flying look for the bird who flies above the plane. That will be the queen of the flock.


What, you've never heard of "Purple Martins majesty/ above the fruited plane"?
