Provide a comfortable home for purple martins to colonize!
Heath Outdoors 30008 Purple Martin Gourds 8 Pack
Gourd entrance hole can be starling resistant (crescent shape) or converted to round
Purple Martin Gourds have been providing homes for purple martins since 1986. The non-translucent almond color gourd reduces heat build-up in the summer, and has a longer life than natural gourds. The 2-piece gourd design makes cleaning easier. Each gourd has a molded rain drip guard that sheds water around the entrance hole while not detracting from the appearance of a natural gourd. Drainage slots in bottom helps prevent water build-up. The two halves snap together and are secured by a single screw. The crescent shaped starling resistant entrance hole allows martins passage, while preventing larger birds from entering the unit. If desired, the bottom of the entrance hole has perforations for making it into a standard round entrance (shown below). Made in the USA!
Easy Clean Gourds are available in 4, 6 or 8 packs
Gourd Dimensions: 8" dia. x 12.125"H; 2-1/8" entrance
