Re: New Chirp-e house review Smile

Why don’t we just dismantle the entire forum, all topics and opinions, and just provide a list of emails. That way everyone is safe from potentially harmful or destructive speech. That would be great progress!

Re: White pine straw vs Yellow pine straw

My martins are sophisticated aristocrats. They are pine straw aficionados. They expect their pine straw to be of the white variety. Their pine straw must be sustainably raised, organically grown, non GMO, gluten free, vine ripened, and hand selected at the peak of perfection. The pine straw must the...

Re: The Disappearing Culture of Purple Martin Landlords | JSTOR Daily

So people spent $20,000 or more on a boat, but bemoan a $500 bird house. LOL. People love their toys (boats, sports cars, 2nd homes, private planes.) But the "cruel, violent, Southern white man" must be shamed and ridiculed if he buys a $500 martin house.

Re: Strong south winds

The wind gonna blow from the South, and help them martins out. Then the wind gonna blow from the North, and hold them martins back. Then a South wind gonna come and push them martins up. Then that North wind gonna push them martins back again. On and On and on till the martins show up same time as l...

Re: The Disappearing Culture of Purple Martin Landlords | JSTOR Daily

Some also reported shooting hawks that threatened martin nests—which is not lawful. BOLONEY I've never heard anyone on this forum advocate for shooting raptors. mostly WHITE MEN from the South. “You have to have almost a CRUEL streak in you… WILLING TO KILL ABOUT ANYTHING else that flies up there.” ...

Re: Newbie – – with new house seeking advice.

Why the guitar pic? Did you make your martin house from an old guitar? Those nest trays look difficult for a martin to hop over while inside.

Re: Horizontal Pipe Gourd

Pipe gourd is a good name for it. It looks like you can smoke somethin in them gourds. I wouldn't want to get pulled over with them gourds in the back seat. Step out of the car. It's only a bird house, officer, I promise.

I never could master that artillery hold either. I got rid of that thing and bought another springer that didn't require a special hold. Best pellet gun decision I ever made.

Re: Out with the rat birds ,in with the martins! New beginnings

Them house sparrows already have an endless supply of feed store food. They're not going to maneuver into your little repeating bait trap if they already have an easy endless supply of feed store food. Insert trap is the way to go.

Re: Out with the rat birds ,in with the martins! New beginnings

Trap the HOSP anyway with an insert trap. The owners probably won't even notice. Put the trapped HOSP in a burlap sack or a cage. If the owner asks "what are you doing," tell them you are going to relocate them. Drive home with your HOSP and do what you know needs to be done. A bait trap won't work ...
