Re: Lone Bird

Thanks y'all. It was probably the heat that made the lil one jump. I never thought about the lone bird being a sibling to the ones that fledged. I hope he/she found the roost and made it ok. Finally gone and I'm glad I don't have to see it sitting and chirping so sadly.

Lone Bird

I had one last gourd with one last nestling almost ready to fledge. Woke up the other day to find the lil one on the ground wet from the dew unable to fly. We put it back in the gourd and saw it peaking out and being fed. The next day I found the baby in the big yard (outside the yard with my rack) ...

Re: Louisiana scout report

Hey Jason! I am so sorry I am just now replying to your post from February. Unfortunately, tax season runs right along side of the time my beautiful martins arrive every year. Last year I finally put up housing in my front yard too so I can watch and listen to my martins through my office window. I ...

"Has anyone ever used a Bird-X Songbird Magnet?" Ossnap: I had a Songbird Magnet, used it a while then passed it on. I think it works very well but I live in Louisiana with 1 tree on 2 acres so I didn't have any trouble getting them. Actually, the first day I plugged it in and turned it on- I walked...

"Doesn't seem like the house is overrun with sparrows. Just the usual few nesting there" I would not allow the sparrows to nest at all. If you can (allowed where you live) shoot them. If you can't shoot them, trap them. They will harm your martins. Also, I think it does sound like the tree is very c...

Matt and Mark, Hi Guys! Yes, this baby is drinking water! And yes, what I am worried about is it falling in the pool when I'm not around. He/she is definitely brave. Flying skills are getting better everyday so I'm not as worried as I was the other day when I posted about it. Today I have a new prob...

Swimming pool

This is the second time in 2 days I have been outside and watched a fledgling try to get water from my in ground pool. I have never seen the adults do this.(I often wondered why not) It is very nerve wracking since they are not good flyers. I wonder why this is the first time I am seeing this? It is...

Chris,
Nothing I would like better if I lived closer! Love a good sunset and have always wanted a pond. All I have is an in ground pool that I would trade for a pond full of fish any day. :)

Scully, I was thrilled to read your story about your bucket list item! Hope I'm not being too nosy but I have a few questions. :) Where did you sleep? Did you camp out? Every night?
