  • Purple martins return year after year

    Bill Hudgins is a landlord. But he doesn't have to worry about his tenants not paying their rent each month.

    Hudgins, who has lived in Campbellsville since 1993, has nearly two dozen gourds and other "homes" for purple martin birds.

    "They're all full," he said. "Last year, I hatched 185 birds."
