I bet when Brett Preuett took off this morning, he was not expecting to catch anything but a fish.
As Brett was skipping docks, I saw him casually lower his rod tip down in the water. That is when the little purple martin latched on for dear life.
“Hey Shane, can you place this little guy on the dock for me?"
That is when I realized that the baby bird's parents had built their nest in an old dilapidated boat dock.
The purple martin is one of the most highly sought-after birds for backyard lovers since they love bugs and mosquitos.
