Crescent doors

I have decided to add a trio house to my Martin colony, I have an old house I am rehabbing and due to starlings always lurking I think I will use crescent entrance on it. Just wondering if anyone has any used/new doors no longer needed and willing to sell.
Thanks Bob

Bluebirds

I have an established martin colony in my backyard, i'm planning to erect a bluebird house in the same yard about 50 feet from the martin house. will this cause a problem with my martins or will they play nice. any thoughts?
Thanks, Bob
