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.

Re: Pellet guns...What do you own or recommend?

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: Songbird Magnet - Reviews?

My songbird magnet let me down. Its not as waterproof as they say it is. I left mine out with the speaker pointing up towards the sky. Sometimes I forgot to bring it in and it got rained on or dewed on. Didn't take long before it crapped out on me. It plays dawn song only not daytime chatter. I reco...
