Re: NEST CHECKS BRISTOL RIDGE COLONY

Thanks Klyer. I am not going to mess with it. Took me 2 months to get on the forum again because of my code not working and now when I go to projectmatinwatch it wants another code to get on there that's different from the forum.

Re: Bristol Ridge Colony New Lexington,Ohio

Good luck to Sharon and Mitch. It took me a long time to get Martins but I have caught fire in this my 5th year of having them. I may put up one more gourd rack. I love the pair in the single gourd. Dave

Nest Checks

I wear my Coon hunting cap light. I have a long pencil with a big eraser I put on it to move and put the leaves back with and I have the paper work done for my wife to sit in a chair and write what I tell her. That's how I do it but the birds watch me too. Some times they watch for a while then some...

Sharon I did a lot of different things over the years before I got Birds. I wrote all about my road to success in the winter 2015 Purple Martin Update. Once I got into the second year with 14 pair I caught fire this year. I hope to get up to about 60 to 70 pair and then stay around that. It's been a...

Thanks

Thanks Sharon. It took me a long time to get started but in four years I have went from one pair in 2012 to 45 pair this year. I really had 47 nests with at least one egg in them but I know two nests with one egg was never set on so I didn't count them two. Good luck next year. Dave
