Door plugs are important to keep messy sparrows from taking over the house during the winter months while the martins are wintering in South America. When the martins begin to return in the spring, take a few plugs out and let the martins know you are "back in business". Then, as more birds come, take the rest of the plugs out and let the martins have their home.
This unique feature designed to prevent what is called "male porch domination". The problem that many landlords have encountered is that one male will dominate a porch that has three potential compartments. By his aggressiveness, he will make the other birds stay off "his porch". This creates a situation in which only one active nest will be found. The other nests that had been started will be abandoned, occasionally after eggs have been laid by other martins.
