'Model' home going up for display


WILLMAR -- Dick Doll is neither a real estate agent or a home builder, but he's about to put a model home on display for all to see.

It's a home for purple martins, and will soon be available for viewing outside of the Willmar Pet Hospital, 705 Minnesota Highway 40.

Purple martins make great neighbors, according to Doll. He and fellow birding enthusiast Randy Frederickson are putting the house up to encourage others to erect their own purple martin houses.
