How To Attract Purple Martins To Your Yard, According To An Expert

Install Proper Housing - Purple Martins prefer to nest in colonies, so installing a multi-compartment birdhouse or a gourd rack is essential.

Choose the Right Location - The birdhouse should be placed in the most open area of your yard, ideally with at least 60 feet of clearance from tall trees or buildings. Purple Martins like clear flight paths for easy access to their nests.

Maintain the Housing - Clean out the birdhouses each year before the Martins return in the spring. This not only makes the housing more attractive but also helps control parasites and diseases.

Offer Water - Having a water source nearby, such as a birdbath or a shallow pond, can make your yard more attractive to Purple Martins. Ensure the water is fresh and the birdbath is cleaned regularly.

Play Purple Martin Calls - Playing recordings of Purple Martin calls can help attract these birds to your yard, especially if your area doesn't already have an established colony.

Be Patient - Attracting Purple Martins can take time, especially if they haven't nested in your area before. Keep your birdhouses up and maintained, even if Martins don't immediately take up residence.

Avoid Using Insecticides - Purple Martins feed on flying insects and using insecticides can reduce their food supply, making your yard less attractive to them.

Engage with a Local Purple Martin Society - Many areas have local clubs or societies dedicated to Purple Martin conservation. They can offer specific advice for your area and may help you get started with attracting Martins to your yard.

Monitor and Protect From Predators - Ensure that the housing is secure from predators such as raccoons, snakes, and cats. This may involve installing predator baffles on the poles that support the birdhouses.
