  2. We have a purple martin house we set up a couple of years ago. My husband got excited earlier in the Spring when he saw the arrival of the first Purple Martins to show up and they were promptly chased off by some Starlings. Now we have some Blue Birds that have built a nest there, but no Purple Martins. Any hints for attracting them?

    • Starlings are a real on going problem. Once a starling takes over a nest it will drive away less aggressive birds like Martins.
      You must solve your starling problem, you can shoot them. Remove starling nest materials from your house at least every other day.
      Do not leave any bird feed available for starlings to eat..
      Hummingbird feeders are OK.

      Note Martins are insect feeders and almost never feed on the ground or eat seeds. They feed on the wing in mid-air.
      Once a martin ‘moves in to’ a nest compartment it is hard to drive them away.

      This year you may consider taking your house down, the starlings will be forced to seek nest sites else where.
      Next year watch don’t put you house up before (Oklahoma) 1 march and keep your house free of starling nest, clean every other day if possible until Martins dominate the house and out number the starlings. This also applies for sparrows invading your martin house.
