"Purple Martin Bird Houses" Norris Favorite Tip by Stephen-KarenConn

  Purple Martin Houses Made of Gourds
by Stephen-KarenConn

Favorite thing: Pioneer farmers built houses of gourds to encourage flocks of purple martins to nest and raise their young on their homesteads. The purple martin, a large dark member of the swallow family, is desirable because of their enormous appetite for flying insects, including the mosquito.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
