Attracting and Managing Purple Martins Project Martinwatch. This is a continent-wide cooperative venture where the Association supplies nest record forms to active Purple Martin "landlords" to fill out as they conduct weekly nest checks on the Purple Martins breeding in their boxes or gourds. At season's end, the forms are totaled up and returned to the organization for analysis.
Purple Martin Gourd House instructions from Amish Gourds
We installed a purple martin house at my mother in laws and are going to install one at mine as well. This is a little how-to on how to put it up. I do know that martins will eat honeybees every now and again but everything I have read from people who keep both say they get along fine. #Homestead #prepper #survivalist #offgrid #lifestyle #health #style
