Purple Martin House, 8 Room


Begin or increase a martin colony when you add this robust, Coveside Purple Martin House to your area. This significant, lasting white pine shelter creates proper nesting opportunities for up to 8 martin families, encouraging them to begin colonizing your area. The 0.75" thick, pine frame not only forms a lasting shelter; its light color also keeps each apartment cool during the summer heat, aided by top ventilation gaps. Each side of the home sports dual, 2" diameter entries for eight total apartments, and a perching ledge below the openings offer your feathered friends a spot to sing or land without territory disputes. The downward sloping, overhanging roof panels and gaps on the corners of each nesting box keep the nests dry and allow any captured water to drain, while the rough hewn pine provides fledglings a secure grip for reaching the opening and exiting when ready. One panel on each side of the generous shelter lifts for maintenance and nest checks, and the center column accommodates a 1.75" outer diameter pole (not included) for placement in your yard. The thick pine body will remain durable and usable for several seasons, aging to a striking gray over time to enhance its rustic style. Encourage martins to colonize in your area with this Purple Martin House. Made in the USA.
