UtopiaBirdHouses Adds Purple Martin Gourds to Product Line extends its wild bird product line with purple martin gourds. These attractive, durable birdhouses add an element diversity to the retailer's ecologically-minded online store, while providing a stimulus for responsible stewardship of nature.

    /24-7PressRelease/ - COPIAGUE, NY, January 23, 2008 -, an online retailer of a variety of wild bird products, recently added a selection of purple martin gourds to its line. Michael Rasco, the owner of UtopiaBirdHouses, has been looking for a source of purple martin gourds that could meet his specifications for some time. The birdhouses needed to have sufficient nesting space, adequate predator protection or resistance, aesthetic appeal, and an attractive price point. These standards were met by S&K Manufacturing out of Missouri, a company that has been producing quality birding products for years.

Centuries ago, Native Americans hollowed out natural gourds to serve as homes for purple martins. This may have been because martins eat vast amounts of insects - though not many mosquitoes, as some claim - or it may have been for the entertainment of watching the aerobatic birds in flight. These days, purple martins that nest east of the Rocky Mountains live exclusively in housing provided by humans, usually in the form of multi-unit martin "apartments" or clusters of gourds. The durable artificial gourds are a favorite among purple martin enthusiasts.

UtopiaBirdHouses will offer the purple martin gourds, poles, and hanging racks individually and in packs at affordable prices. Mr. Rasco believes these offerings will stimulate sales and encourage responsible stewardship of the natural ward.
