Our old houses were blown down in a wind storm in June. We managed to save most of the babies and placed them back into a pieced-together house on top of a ladder. The babies are all grown and ready to migrate so we put up the new houses before they left so they could get used to them. Hopefully they will make the return trip next March. These are excellent martin houses. Never fail to attract martins.
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.
