Arkansas State Southeast Purple Martin Capital

City of Lake Village

Adopted in 1993

The term "flyway" has long been used to designate the migration routes of birds. For management purposes, four waterfowl flyways - Pacific, Central, Mississippi, and Atlantic - were established in the United States in 1948. To varying degrees the waterfowl populations using each of these flyways differ in abundance, species composition, migration pathways, and breeding ground origin. There are differences, also, in levels of shooting pressure and harvest.

Since the purple martin, a bird known for its appetite for flying insects, is deemed by most as an attractive asset for its appearance, song, cleanliness, and diet - America's Most Wanted Bird, and since the City of Lake Village in Chicot County of southeastern Arkansas is located along the North-South Flyway, the major migration route for millions of birds, the City of Lake Village in Chicot County, shall be designated by the General Assembly to be known as the "Southeast Purple Martin Capital of the State of Arkansas.
