About Aluminum Purple Martin Houses

Did you know... Aluminum houses seem to be best suited for the Purple Martin. They are lightweight; do not harbor parasites, easy to clean, and cooler, if properly ventilated.

The purple martin is America's most desirable backyard bird. Homeowners enjoy purple martins for their beauty of flight, social behavior, pleasant chirp, and insect eating ability. Purple martins are totally dependent on humans for housing and are very friendly to humans.
