Overview

Predominantly in Eastern North America, Purple Martins are attracted to houses with multiple apartments to establish colonies. Most martins have remarkable navigational ability, and will often return to the same breeding colony.

This house opens on four sides for easy cleaning and mounts securely on a pole. The design purposely separates each of the individual "apartments", and they all have appropriate ventilation and drainage. The house should be mounted 10 to 20 feet off the ground, and should not be moved once installed, or the previous colony may not come back.

Habitat: Seeks open woodlands, residential areas and agricultural land. See photos for map of their typical range.

Features & Benefits:

  • House is rough-sawn
  • Handcrafted from 1" white pine for insulation and durability
  • Mounting hardware not included (2/1-1/2" wood screws recommended)
  • Made in the USA

About Coveside Conservation:

All wildlife nests / boxes are correct in every detail for each species and come with species specific literature and mounting instructions.

All of our nest boxes are crafted of custom milled, premium grade, sustainably grown, Eastern white pine, from Robbins Lumber mill in Maine. Robbins Lumber is a leader in responsible forestry management practices. They replant where they harvest, secure the soil from erosion, preserve wildlife habitats and ensure that a sixth generation of the Robbins family can depend on a healthy and productive forest.

  • Product Quality: Customers tell us again and again that the Coveside products are “the best on the market” with the unique rougher-head finish and secure construction.
  • Environmental Concern: The dimensions are correct for each species and care is given to ventilation and drainage for the well being of the inhabitants.
  • Conservationists Prefer: Coveside products are manufactured from eastern white pine which is preferable because it is a second-growth tree which rejuvenates quickly.
  • Educational Materials: Each product comes with a brochure and a card telling about the wildlife inhabitant that will use it, recommending ideas for location and suggestions for maintenance procedures.
  • Experts Select: Coveside habitats were selected to be on permanent display in the United States Arboretums Buchheister National Bird Garden in Washington, DC and the Wildlife Garden at River Farm Gardens of the American Horticultural Society in Alexandria, VA.
