Heath Deluxe Purple Martin Gourds, Pack of 2

Help martins colonize in your garden by placing these 2 Heath Deluxe Purple Martin Gourds in it. This pair of hardy, molded plastic shelters ensures martins have comfortable and durable roosting spots. The generous, 9" deep chambers provide plenty of nesting area, which the birds access via the crescent shaped, starling resistant entry on each gourd. A generous landing platform extends from this opening, with a textured finish that mimics cobblestone for birds to easily grip it. The porches also create an inside landing for martins, while a molded, peaked roof above each opening directs water away from the nests. A few holes on the base of each gourd provide drainage, helping nestlings stay dry. A side, threaded access port with a screw-on cap makes checking each nest simple, and the beige color of the items aids in keeping them cool. Predrilled holes at the top of each gourd accommodate a 3/8" diameter hanging rod, and allow you to orient the item in two different ways for versatility. Their sturdy, all plastic construction remains durable, while the innovative features are a boon for martins. Add 2 convenient martin housing spots to your bird garden with these Deluxe Purple Martin Gourds.
