Re: Amazon

Dave —- I don’t think the Martins have reached the Amazon yet in their Southern travels.. A lot of Martins are still moving South through Mexico and heading to the Panama area.. Just my opinion..

It seemed to be the deal maker in attracting my first nesting pairs. However, after those first nesters the gourds won out in a...

Re: Nighthawks

Very nice, yep neat birds. Have not seen that many at once! They lay eggs and nest right on the ground, they seem to like open areas, have stumbled on night hawk chicks while walking around remote areas...they do not move at all and hope you dont see them. Tough to spot unless you are looking right...

Re: How Many Gourds on 2" Pole ??

I have a AAA gourd rack with 2 inch pole. It holds 16 gourds just fine. In strong winds it will move a little and I lower it if storms are forecasted. It is probably close to 10 years old and still very straight. I wouldn't be afraid to hang 2 more gourds on it. .. . Thanks Flyin-Lowe.... I was thi...
