Owl guards for sale

[attachment=1]thumbnail_IMG_4708.jpg[/attachment]I built cages around my gourd racks this year so I don’t need my owl guards. If you are interested and live in the Burleson/Fort Worth, Texas area please message me. I’d rather not ship and prefer to have someone come to my house or I can meet if close.

Emil, it seems my dad use to help pollinate them.. Have you ever done that? I guess I need to read up and see how to do that. :) Thanks for your help!

need advice on growing gourds

I am growing a gourd plant for fun. My dad use to grow them and make wren houses out of them. My plant is blooming a lot but I only have 1 gourd so far. I would think every flower would turn into a gourd?? Any advice will be appreciated!

I live south of Fort Worth and we've had the same cool wet weather for almost a month now. I recently got my martins to eat out of the feeder trays and I'm so glad.

John, I always love reading your reports. I am hopeful that our bad weather will end and I can enjoy my birds again. I have tried so hard to keep them alive by doing everything possible. I lost 2 and hope the little lady that is left can hang in there a few more days.

wing entrapment protector

I bought 24 of the wing entrapment protectors from the PMCA and finally put them on last weekend as part of my maintenance chores on my houses. I usually use the weatherproofing tape. I'll let you know how they do!

Is it February yet? I miss them..

John I'm glad you showed how you glued the PMCA guards on, I was dreading screwing them into all my entrances. Now I'll just glue like you did.

And I love the photo of your kitty! Is that the one that just stayed around and you adopted her? :lol:
