In the southern states we are finding out that Purple Martin Landlords who are putting up and using METAL housing systems are actually cooking approximately 40-60% of the eggs laid by the adult birds. We are asking that all southern bird houses either be made of plastic (but not PVC) or wood. We have received numerous reports from landlords of well-established colonies that the adult purple martins have abandoned their metal houses because very few if any of the eggs laid these last two very hot summers actually fledged out. For more information.
