Purple Martins Return to Walt Disney World

EPCOT is sounding a little bit like Disney’s Animal Kingdom with the return of Purple Martins! While the rest of the world relies on a groundhog to signal the end of winter, Walt Disney World relies on migratory birds.

Each year, purple martins travel to Walt Disney World Resort to raise their young before flying more than 6,000 miles to the Brazilian rainforest and back.

We grabbed some photos and video of the vocal birds as they arrive at Walt Disney World for the first time this year.

The Purple Martins seem rather unphased by the nearby construction.
