Purple Martin Time

For purple martin lovers, now is the time to get the purple martin houses up and ready for the arriving martins. Scout birds are already in the southern states and moving north.  Purple martins prefer natural gourd houses over plastic gourds. They are cooler in the summer and easier for the birds to move around in due to the woodlike inner surface of the gourds.  Buy your houses now and be ready for your new tenants!
