Build A Birdhouse

Department of Wildlife Conservation
1801 North Lincoln
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73105

PURPLE MARTINS: The gregarious nesting habits of martins will allow the builder to employ skill and imagination in construction. Important factors to consider are coolness and accessibility. A multi-storied apartment house will attract a colony of martins. The availability of water will be a factor in inducing the birds to nest. The houses should be situated in an open space and painted white to reflect heat.
