Locating Purple Martin Birdhouses

Where should Purple Martin birdhouses be placed?  Martins instinctively choose birdhouses for safety and most experienced Purple Martin landlords suggest locating Purple Martin Bird Houses at least 40 feet from the nearest house or tree.  This provides protection to the bird houses from above and gives Martins room to swoop in and out of houses and perform the aerials loops they, and we, love so well. 

Purple Martin birdhouses should also be safely and securely mounted on a mounting pole so that the bird houses are located 12 to 15 feet above the ground and above any dangers below. You can further protect your Martin families by placing predator guards around the pole.

Many Purple Martin landlords locate several Purple Martin Bird Houses.  Purple Martins are communal birds, often living in large colonies of birdhouses with several Martin families.
