I have been snooping around for a purple martin house and not been incredibly impressed given the quality and price.
I did buy one from HD and returned it (what a joke).
I have noticed lots of my neighbors have the gourd houses made from white plastic material.
I'm new to the purple martin thing, as well as my area. I do know we have tons of martins that have migrated and will return next year.
Suggestions about a house or the gourds??
