Purple Martins Arrive at Walt Disney World’s New White Gourd Birdhouses

Love is in the air… like actually flying in the air! That’s right, beautiful Purple Martins have arrived as Walt Disney World for mating season and are enjoying Disney’s new white gourd birdhouses. Check out the details below!


As shared via Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment Facebook page: “Love is in the air and so are purple martins! Did you know its nesting season for these migratory birds? Arriving on the fly over the past month, February typically signals it’s time for these “love birds” to find a mate and Cast Members like Dr. Jason Fischer are ready to help set them up for success. You could go as far as calling these Cast “wingmen” for these colonial nesters — as they have recently completed setting up all white gourd birdhouses which the male purple martins will build a nest for their valentine in. To learn more about the purple martins, visit”

We love it! Way to go Cast Members for giving these stunning birds a place to call home. We can’t but wonder if we’ll get any photo updates of Purple Martin babies!

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
