This 10" SuperGourd has the same classic design as the martin gourd with a smaller 1 1/2 inch opening to accommodate Swallows, Wrens and Bluebirds.  


Note: This model come only with round opening.


The SuperGourd is a one-piece plastic gourd with a molded-in, threaded access port, covered by a screw-on cap.  The access port is large enough to admit a human hand and is totally watertight.  It weighs in at 31 ounces, slightly heavier than a natural gourd its size, so it swings less in the wind.  The one-piece body has no seams, so no rain will leak in, and seven 5/16 drain holes provide a rapid exit for any rain that may blow in through the entrance hole.

SuperGourds are blow-molded in white (sun-reflecting), opaque, high-density polyethylene plastic.  They wont rot, peel, split, or crack out in the elements, and wont break if accidentally dropped like natural gourds can.  Because they are molded with ultraviolet inhibitors added to the plastic, they have a long life expectancy with virtually no maintenance other than giving a quick scrub at the end of the season. 
SuperGourds can easily be hung underneath an existing martin house, from a gourd rack, or strung on a line between two poles.  One set of 1/4 hanging holes (side-to-side) are pre-drilled and will accept a hanging wire; a set of front-to-back holes can easily be drilled by the purchaser if so desired.  
This gourd style housing is highly attractive to martins, swallows, wrens and bluebirds (but are the least attractive to House Sparrows or starlings), reduce the risk of owl predation and have high occupancy rates.  Ready to hang right out of the box no assembly required.  
Dimensions: 10" diameter x 14" high
