Natureline II 11" Gourds, Oblong SREH, 16 PackCreate classic housing for your purple martins using the Natureline II 11" Gourds. These gourds were designed with a martin's needs in mind. The generous 11" diameter base offers plenty of nesting room, and enables the martins to place their nest away from the door for added protection against predators. A side viewing port and cap allow you to perform nest checks with ease, and prevent nestlings from fledging early when nest doors are open unexpectedly. The opaque white color keeps the gourds cool through the warm summer months, while the vent caps at the top add an extra level of temperature adjustment. The snap-in door with oblong starling resistant entrance hole eliminates the need to disassemble the gourd for year-end cleaning, and is interchangeable with the round, crescent SREH, or blank door insert for winter. A small canopy over the hole protects the interior from rain, and two large openings in the bottom of the gourd help drain and dry the interior when necessary. The durable plastic units have UV inhibitors added to withstand the effects of the sun. This package of 16 gourds fills your existing gourd rack with ease, for you to watch purple martins colonize. Each gourd can be assembled with only a Phillips screwdriver. Made in the USA.
