  • Conley II Tunnel features Wing Entrapment Guard so birds don't get caught up.
  • Martins prefer this "Conley" opening to crescent in field test!
  • UV-protected Polyethylene material on gourd and cap.
  • Design protects martins from Raccoons, Owls and Hawks
  • Can be hung from wires or rack systems
  • Tunnel includes a textured porch for perching and internal traction or the birds
  • Tunnel Trap TTHT compatible and highly recommended
  • Recommend to be hung on horizontal arms of the Deluxe Gourd Rack, Trendsetter Gourd Rack or Other High Quality Racks below.
Note: Round Entrance does not include entrapment guard.  We do not recommend round entrance holes for martins but they are excellent for bluebirds and some other songbirds
Very Important! Into each mini canopy drill a ¼" hole. This will vent the gourd. Plug
the holes during the spring, and open once the young are 7-10 days old.

Troyer Vertical Gourds

These are real nice gourds with thick walls and heavy duty inspection caps. The nest chamber is approx. 8" x 10" and with the tunnel, the depth from the starling resistant Conley II entrance, is 13". That is excellent depth to deter owl predation. The landing ledge is 3" x 6" and is ribbed for good traction. 4 small canopies may be drilled out for additional ventilation. Add a couple of handfuls of soft pine needles and these gourds will provide an ideal environment for purple martin nesting success.

Nests 2 Weeks After Order

Our purple martin colony outgrew our 12 gourd rack this nesting season and all other suppliers were backordering gourds. Within a week my order for additional gourds was filled (a couple weeks ahead of schedule) and within 2 Weeks of ordering, they were filled with nests! Thank you for such personal service and very quick delivery. Exceeded my expectations.
