my scout came back again today in new concord,oh

a scout to early in New Concord,oh

I was so shocked this morning when i heard a scout singing the the sky then saw him land on the top of my Gemini Gourd rack. He sat there for an hour while i got one t-14 ready.

Re: nestcheck/hawk

dont stop nest checks you have to be aware of whats happening in the nests all the time. As far as the hawks my wife and i are in our 70's and constantly watch out for hawks a couple times a day to shout at them and scare them. We shout blank shells at them just to scare them off. Its a pity they ar...

Its sad but makes me somewhat proud. During these cold days my martins had meal worms crickets oyster shells a...
