Wild Bird Lover's Deluxe Purple Martin Gourds, Pack of 8
Give an abundance of purple martins a fantastic option for shelter in your yard with this amazing pack of 8 Wild Bird Lover's Deluxe Purple Martin Gourds. This collection of 8 expansive, plastic shelters gives martins a safe and secure home while providing a hint toward the gourds martins used in centuries past, with a variety of helpful design features offering protection and comfort for the whole colony. The sturdy, molded plastic bodies of the gourds form protective homes, while the rectangular bases and rounded tops make traditional gourd shapes to populate your lawn. The 2.875" diameter entry sits on the narrower side of each gourd's base, letting martins construct a nest deep within each unit to create distance from unwanted predators, while included, plastic porches may be installed to transform the entries into a 2.75" wide and 1.5" tall, crescent shaped opening for variability. Songbirds will gain a firm grip thanks to raised lines on the porches, and the platforms extend inward inside the dwelling for additional perching area. Each gourd has a readily removable cap at its back, to expose an access port sized for an adult hand, fostering timely maintenance and nest checks. Each item's four, 0.375" diameter openings at the top accommodate gourd rods, letting you situate the piece in a perpendicular or parallel manner to your pole for your own preferred showcase. Gradual arches above each opening prevent water from accumulating in the nesting space, while a multitude of drainage holes at the base allow captured water to escape. The beige complexion of these durable, plastic homes keep the colony from reaching too high of a temperature in the summer, while each unit's shape encourages warmer air to go upward, away from the nest. With 8 amazing gourds included in this package, you have everything you need to establish a bustling martin haven in your backyard, as you can situate these amazing units all throughout your landscape for variable interest on your property. Give wonderful martins a bevy of safe and convenient dwellings in your yard with this outstanding collection of 8 Deluxe Purple Martin Gourds.
