Purple Martins are gregarious and interesting birds, but to attract them, you need to locate the house properly. Purple Martins tend to "swoop" into their house, and this swooping requires room.
The Purple Martin house should be located in the open, and some distance from any tall objects like trees and buildings. As a general rule of thumb, a Martin house should be placed a distance from the tall object equal to the objects' height.
Strangely, Martins like some human activity in the vicinity. Try to place the Martin house within 60 to 100 feet of your own. Apparently over time, Martins have discovered that human activity reduces predators.
