I haven't seen any purple martins yet, but I did see a snipe this morning, the first this year. Trees are blooming, so it want be long until the bugs come out. Martins will show along with the bugs.

I have not had martins for two or three years. A very few come, but do not stay.I have good houses, open fields, and an available pond. We do have problems with sparrows and starlings, but try to keep them run off. Any suggestions appreciated.

Several years ago we were infested with Starlings, one day we heard alot of "screaming and commotion" outside. In the short time it tooks us to get outside, the Starlings had devastated all the nests, even killing several female Martins. It was several years before we had any Martins again. The Starlings wiped out our entire "family" of Martins. Don't know if this is your problem or not but it definitely taught me not to put the houses back on their poles until we see the Martin "scouts" checking everything out. Just don't let the sparrows or starlings get a head start on the Martins. Good luck and hope you see more Martins soon.

@ opinion : I agree. Martins and barn swallow prefer to nest in the area where they were hatched. Barn swallows nested in my carport one year (and crap all over my car), now I have one heck of a time keeping them out.

Purple Martins in Tennessee are very difficult to attract. House not close to buildings or trees and a clear flight to house in at least two directions. House must be near water for building nest and no competition from other birds especially starlings. I always tore the other bird nests out by hand before they hatched eggs. I could not stand to kill them. I did have martins and know that they always come back to the same place every year, they mate for life, all hatchlings come back to the same place. That is why you should never take down your house the scouts look for it each year.
