Re: Trio pioneer house door

Hi Dave,
I do my best checks from the back doors. My goal is to put the new doors on all my holes on both houses for next year. After this year is done but don't want to scare off my pair for next year when they come back.

Re: Trio pioneer house door

Hi Dave I made the opening 3" to match the tunnel opening. I really like the owl guards I put on. I'm thinking of only puting then on one of the two houses I have at the end of the season.

Re: What's the best hole to use

Thank you for the responses. Im sure what a colony 2 hole looks like. I have 2 trio pioneer houses with crescent and excluder hole. I was using round hole to attract Martin's after getting a pair of adult birds the starlings moved in and chased the martins away.

What's the best hole to use

Hi all, this is my second year here in Sioux city Iowa as a PM landlord. In the past week I had a pair of adult martings staying in my house until two days ago a pair of starlings moved in. Haven't seen the pair of martins since.

What is the best hole to use?
Thank you
Rob
