Heath Purple Martin Gourds, Pack of 18Provide your growing martin colony new housing with these Heath Purple Martin Gourds. This set of 18, plastic gourds makes it simple for you to start or maintain a martin colony, and evokes the homes offered to these birds in ancient times. Each gourd creates an individual apartment for a martin family, with a 2.25" diameter front entry providing passage. The spacious, 6.5" long and 6.5" wide, interior compartment allows the martins to place their nest away from the entry, for added protection from predators. The ivory hue of each gourd keeps nestlings cool, and a small hole at the base of each provides drainage. A tab with a predrilled hole at the top of each gourd allows you to hang them from a rack system (not included), or affix them to the base of your existing martin homes for extra roosting options. Offer martins additional housing to ensure your colony grows by placing these Purple Martin Gourds in your yard.
Note: This package includes 18 of the Heath Purple Martin Gourds.
