The All-Electronic Digital Bird Caller that replaces the Dawn Song CD's. TOTALLY AUTOMATIC (no moving parts like CD players to ever wear out AND never becomes obsolete after colonizing your purple martin house because of the Song Bird switch that plays other birds).
I've had many installations where, when I turned on the SONGBIRD MAGNET at a newly-erected purple martin housing system, the purple martins IMMEDIATELY flew in and started checking out the compartments. This device is a "MUST HAVE" for every purple martin landlord.
Compact, easy-to-use dual-function electronic unit. Designed to attract purple martins to your martin housing system or use the unit to bring in beautiful songbirds to your yard and bird feeders.
Attract Purple Martins: Entices useful and widely-loved Purple Martins. A purple martin can consume up to 2000 flying insects every day. These desirable birds nest together and will return to the same housing system year after year. The SONGBIRD MAGNET plays the dawn song heard in every purple martin colony, inviting passing martins to live in your purple martin colony.
Attract Favorite Songbirds: Calls beautiful and melodious House Finches, Baltimore Orioles, American Gold Finches, House Wrens, Indigo Buntings and Eastern Bluebirds. The SONGBIRD MAGNET reproduces the charming songs of these choosy species, assuring them that others of their kind are thriving. The familiar calls encourage song birds to visit your feeding stations and/or nest boxes. They will soon become delightful regular visitors to your yard.
Features of Caller: The SONGBIRD MAGNET was designed in consultation with ornithologists and biologists for maximum realism. Naturally recorded with the latest digital equipment, the output represents multiple individuals, with each song set to play at naturally occurring intervals.
