Re: Adding new housing

You can do now if you want. Just make sure you will be able to mow between your set ups . Your birds will be nosey as heck and will most likely land on it as soon as you have it up. I usually keep mine around 10- 15 feet apart.
Good Luck.

Re: Wind question?

I would just leave it lowered year round . My martins never cared that it was lowered. I'd rather not worry as much by leaving it down.

Re: Porch Dividers

Make your own out of some kind of plastic. I think I used plastic off a cat litter container . Cut it a tiny bit taller that you need and bend it in to its grooves. I am assuming the grooves are still there. I haven't had that model of house for a long time Good luck and dividers will help and I bet...

Re: Hay for nesting?

Alex I have heard on this forum if the hay gets wet it takes a long time to dry which would not be good for the pms to stay warm and dry. I use white pine needles myself and they work great. You might call around to any local park around you and ask the park ranger if he knows where there are some w...

Re: nest replacement

Dave There are no dumb questions :grin: yes you simply remove old nesting material and replace with white pine needles(is what I use) Make sure its enough to cover the floor and yes just make it look like a nest bowl if you want, as best as you can. You can just handle the babies carefully and place...
