looks like it to me Kim. If you look in 2nd pic to top left side you have a Blue Grosbeak or Indigo Bunting. I can't see it clear enough

Yep, Tree Swallows.

Top left in the second pic looks like an imitation plastic purple martin, designed to attract real Purple Martins to use the boxes ;-)

Yes, and yes to the Swallows. And Resin is spot on on imitation plastic purpe martin. lol. Donna, I'd be so very happy to spot some Buntings around here. Though, I've seen a Rose Breasted Grosbeak passing by before. Love those colorful birds.

Thank you to both Donna and Resin.
