Purple martins, with their monogamous lifestyle and interesting behaviors, are extremely entertaining birds but can often be difficult to attract. Give yourself the best chance of housing these wonderful birds with the help of Heath Outdoor Products 15-foot Martin house pole. This extremely strong, three-section galvanized steel pole telescopes to 15 feet when fully extended and locks with a convenient, easy-to-use key fastening system. For maximum stability, it's recommended that you plant this pole deep in the ground or concrete; a plastic ground sleeve is included to make this process easier. Once it is firmly seated, this pole is sturdy enough to hold the heaviest of martin houses in even the heaviest winds.
Increase your chances of attracting purple martins by deploying some of these life-sized, highly-detailed, purple martin decoys. Establishing a new colony is often difficult because purple martins are social or colonial nesters. Martins prefer the company of others and are reluctant to be the first to settle at a new site. Decoys are believed to increase the chances of attracting breeding Purple Martins by helping to create the illusion of genuine colony-site activity. This gives scouts the confidence to stay and nest. These decoys come with instructions and all hardware necessary for mounting. Compatible with a variety of housing, including gourds, traditional wood, and aluminum houses.
