Wild Bird Lover's Two-Piece Martin Gourds, Pack of 4

Offer fantastic and comfortable housing for wonderful purple martins in your bird garden with these Wild Bird Lover's Two-Piece Martin Gourds. This handy pack of 4 gourds lends delightful martins a safe and reliable set of roosts, while adding variety and interest to your yard. Each gourd features a front and back section which interlock for sturdy assembly, while an included screw toward the slender, top neck keeps each nest securely joined. The rounded base of each gourd forms an expansive, 7" diameter nesting area, and the crescent-shaped entry helps discourage larger birds from invading the dwelling. If starlings are not a concern, use the perforations to remove the extra material at the base of the entry, transforming it into a 2.125" diameter, round opening as an alternative. A small, plastic canopy situated above the entrance protects the nest from rain and inclement weather, while a pair of slots on each gourd's base lends superior drainage for accumulated water. Each gourd's off white tone keeps the nesting area temperature well-regulated, helping the birds stay cool during hot summer days, while reminding of natural gourds used throughout the past. A hole situated at the top of each unit lets you conveniently and easily display these wonderful items beneath your existing martin house (not included) or on a rack (not included) for a functional and appealing showcase. Durable, plastic bodies mean these pieces will hold up reliably over many seasons of service, while maintenance and cleaning is a simple task thanks to the two-piece design. Give martins plentiful and helpful housing options with this pack of 4 Two-Piece Martin Gourds. Assembly required.
