Heritage Farms Single Purple Martin GourdBring a nature-inspired, time tested shelter to your bird garden with this Heritage Farms Single Purple Martin Gourd. Dried, hollowed gourds were successfully used in centuries past as housing for migratory purple martins, and the extended neck and rounded body of this roost perfectly evokes this shape. Alternating raised and impressed elements at the flared end of the neck lend fantastic texture and a natural appeal to this piece, while a 2.125" diameter entry hole provides safe passage for martins. This leads to a 6.25" diameter, interior nesting area, deep enough for birds to place eggs near the back, away from predators. A drainage hole on the slightly flattened base helps the home and compartment remain dry, while the beige tone keeps fledglings cool in the summer. Readily suspend this gourd using its integrated top loop; it can either be placed below an existing house, or situated on a gourd rack system for a different look. Its molded, plastic body is simple to maintain and clean for use again and again, while offering lasting shelter to your feathered friends. Increase the nesting options for your martin colony with this Single Purple Martin Gourd.
