All About Purple Martins THE HISTORY & BENEFITS OF PURPLE MARTINS

  Purple Martin History
As far back as the story of man in America is known - either in legend or recorded history - the Purple Martin has been a friend of man. The Indians lured it to their villages with hollow gourds hung near their tepees for nesting cavities. More recent settlers have used crude wooden houses and gourds to induce martins to nest near their homes.
Wooden houses were too heavy to work with. The rotting wood harbored deadly parasites and looked unattractive. These dilapidated houses became a favorite nesting site for the starling, considered to be a nuisance and pest.
