JUVENILE PURPLE MARTINS, CELERY FIELDS, SARASOTA, FL
The Purple Martin in the first photo is a juvenile, as can be seen from its white streaked underparts. The white streaked birds in the second photo are also juveniles. The Purple Martins where you can't see the white underparts with streaks may be adults or juveniles positioned so you can't see the underparts and/or backlighted.
