PH-12: Plastic Purple Martin House - 12 Room
Purple Martins are social birds that prefer colony living. Heath’s 12-room plastic Purple Martin House is built for the birds. Because it’s constructed of lightweight plastic, this house is easier to raise and lower. Easily snap together this house and install it on a pole (sold separately). Each opening is an appropriate size and includes protective rails. Drainage holes in the house allow moisture to escape.

Why round holes?
It is known now round holes are welcoming all other birds and predators. Good luck getting and keeping martins. I have been looking for replacement entry flaps for weeks now
Hi Kelly, it is better to have the round holes when trying to establish a colony as it is easier for the Purple Martins to get into the cavity. Once a colony is established and they return every year the starling resistant entrances are ok to use. We want to make it easier for the Purple Martins to get in and use the house. They may not want to stay if they have to try too hard in a new location.
Nice Martin house, but hard to assemble...
Easy “Snap” Assembly...it says on the box. No, I don’t think so. Getting the second floor snapped to the first floor was a pain. If you are one that swears, you will use every cuss word available and then make up some of your own. Who ever made this house needs to rethink the design.
