Most birds prefer to nest in "single" homes; the socially minded purple martins like multiple units under one roof. The hinged roof on this Colonial replica makes it easy to clean out old nests, insects, and snakes. The three chimneys make excellent perches, though the dark exterior hue doesn't work as well as white at deflecting the sun.
