Re: Black ops underway tonight!!

DBH, I figured I might a rise out of Steve but I haven’t seen any posts or updates. I did see the one scout report he listed. I’m just pokin fun at him,he’s a nice guy and tolerates it well. You what they say “if we didn’t like ya we wouldn’t pick at ya”. Hope I haven’t plucked a nerve or anything. ...

Strong south winds

Does anyone look at windy.com? It shows the prevailing winds and has a daily scale you can click to look a few days ahead. For the last couple of days through Tuesday we have had strong winds outa the south. There has been a large number of new scout reports through the weekend and 7 so far today fo...

Re: Black ops underway tonight!!

So last season I attempted to simply sneak across mr. Steve’s large yard and lift some martins and sneak back out. The neighbors dog spotted me and I had to make a hasty retreat! So this season after noticing the early arriving birds,I hatched a new plan :evil: :evil: . I figured if I bailed two cli...

Texas oughta load up!

Looking at windy.com site at the winds today. There is good south wind coming across the gulf and the bulk of then converges together and flows right on into Texas. Keepin an eye on scout report to see how many people report over the weekend into first part of next week. They should get a good suppl...

Martins a little late.

Ok I’m always outa the box,so I’m gonna put it out there. With all the early arrivals I couldn’t help but notice there are ZERO arrivals in Texas ! The first arrivals last year show 14th & 15th of January. So far none . So with all the early birds being a week to two weeks early ,it seems a little s...

Re: Luring ASY martins from an existing colony?

Hi there Dave,I about LMAO at your take on my little scenario here. I tried to explain about the fact that even though he has had birds in the past he could make improvements to enhance his “site attractibility factor” to the birds. I don’t feel as though I stole his birds,I just #1have a better fly...

Re: Luring ASY martins from an existing colony?

SCleland, gooday. After some thought I thought I would bring up some other points about getting your birds going. You notice where rrmartins mentions having a good setup? Well I’ll tell of a situation of that. I have this neighbor about 600-700 yards away,and traditionally before I set up for martin...

Re: They are coming

Hi there Dave,well here we are again,excited and waiting! Looks like the reports are pretty in line with last year. There were 11 reports as there is now by 1-7-20. So a few got in there a day or two early,fronts and winds can help that I would guess. I should see some activity here in central Louis...

Re: Luring ASY martins from an existing colony?

SCleland, what these guys are telling you is correct. It is unlikely established martins will leave their site. Follow their advice cause this ain’t their first rodeo. I started with just a couple of houses and then added a good batch of gourds for a choice and went from one lone nut the first year,...
