Re: Tree swallow anxiety, try this.

I've always found that once they start building nest's they will stay at hat location. What gets people is they have TS going in and out of a gourd for a couple weeks and then open their PM housing, the the TS start going to it and by the time you close it back off and force them back to their gour...

Re: Tree swallow anxiety, try this.

Hopefully I don't sound argumentative, as that is not my intent. I am always interested in ways to help when it comes to Tree Swallows. I help a lot of people in my area with martins and TS are the biggest problem getting started. Have you tried the method that you are describing or are you plannin...

Re: Tree swallow anxiety, try this.

I've heard of people moving them if they get into a gourd rack without the landloard knowing about it. In your case I would not give them the option. Leave the gourd rack gourds closed up so the only option they have is the near by shepherds hook. I know all to well the frustration of dealing with ...

Re: ASY male showed up today...

Randy74 you should ultimately be in good shape with whatever amount of patience will be required for your site. I'm a firm believer that if you're seeing martin visitors/lookers each season it's only a matter of time. Not knowing exactly how much time is obviously the tough part. Meanwhile all one ...

Re: Outdoor Amazon Speaker

Now for a simpler solution. Blue tooth speakers can be found for as little as $10, and everyone has their older cell phone on a drawer, right? Find the Martin day chatter, or dawn song on YouTube and record it on the cell phone's record app. (download a sound record app. if you need to.) Now you ca...

That's great. He's definitely bonded to your site. He'll find a mate soon. Those south winds yesterday were howling. There should be lots of new SY girlfriends around today.

He is not here very much he might sneak in out, I hope as it gets warmer more sy start showing up.

Re: ASY male showed up today...

Your ASY will get a sub adult female as soon as they arrive in your area. He’s going to bring her to your site and you’ll have sub adult males too working your site before you know it. Good to hear. Thanks I have been inspecting the gourds he goes into they have droppings I assume from him, is that...

Re: ASY male showed up today...

Do you still have issues with HOSP? Sounds like I need to tend to those I see in the yard.
