Re: Dawn Song or Daytime Chatter?

...... I have both the Day time chatter and the Dawn Song... I prefer the Dawn Song myself... The Day time Charter does not seem as loud when played on my CD player at the same volume as the Dawn Song...

Re: Arrival dates - causes?

Could it be individuals within a clony that have the drive to come back early and that competition pushes each other. ??? These things intrigue me as well. I like to know why.

Re: Pole Question

... jpp77 ... A friend of mine, put a 1 1/2 or 1 1/4 inches round pole down inside the top piece of his triangular pole and drill a bolt through both pieces to keep it from rotating inside of the Triangular pole.. Then mounted his house on the 1 1/2 pole... Hope this helps
