Purple Martin Gourds with Hanging Bracket and Pole KitSupply migratory martins suitable and lasting shelter with this Purple Martin Gourds with Hanging Bracket and Pole Kit. These unique birds exclusively roost in manmade, colony housing, and this BestNest staff designed package wonderfully helps meet their specific needs. Each of the 6, fully assembled, Heath Purple Martin Gourds have a 2.25" diameter entry hole, and a light color to prevent nestlings from overheating. A drainage hole on the base helps nests remain dry, while an extended neck mimics the shape of natural gourds. Slide each gourd onto the rods of the included S&K Hanging Gourd Bracket, and secure them with the included pins. This gourd rack assembly is designed for use with the included S&K Telescoping Aluminum Tri-Pole with Ground Socket, its triangular opening in the plastic hub fitting perfectly on the pole. Hold the plastic bracket in place with a set screw, situating the gourds at a great height for martins. Lower the smaller sections of the pole into the larger ones below it to bring the hub downward for regular nest checks and maintenance. The varied lengths of the bracket rods keep the gourds offset, reducing territory disputes, and the plastic hub securely retains their placement. Two included, Heath Deluxe Purple Martin Decoys with Mounts clip into the gourds or onto the rods to better attract martins, and the included Stokes Purple Martin Book offers in-depth information on the needs and behaviors of these birds. The pieces all combine for a superb, staff designed package, and their lasting materials are great for use for many seasons. Encourage martins to colonize in your yard with this Purple Martin Gourds with Hanging Bracket and Pole Kit. Assembly required.
