Re: Sad to see em leaving

Hi Delma! I did the same thing. Took my gourds down due to sparrows and the next day there were 10+ sitting on the perch with no gourds below! I felt like I took their home away! I put 3 gourds back up but so far have not seen any others return. I think the martins were a combination of visitors and...

Re: Thrilled

That’s awesome Delma! I’m happy you have some good entertainment to go with your coffee! Wish my martins would stand up to the HOSP. Went out to watch mine this morning and a sparrow pair had taken over one of my pair of martin’s gourd. They are trying to get it back, BUT! Those HOSP are a thorn in ...

Kyler that’s terrible news! Hoping and praying your site isn’t torn apart. You’ve worked so hard to provide homes for your martins. Keep us updated?

Re: Woo Hoo!! ASY Male back in central PA

Congrats Toy! Glad they made it back. Weather is rotten here in Illinois too. Expecting more snow in a couple days so winter isn’t over here yet either. Hope your martin does well.

Re: Admiring the Martins.

Glad to hear that there are several in Forest Park. I keep watching the scout report for the martins at Cahockia but the cold is keeping them away, I guess? I saw one on 3/22 at my satellite site and none since. My arrival last year was 4/2 so they really aren’t late. I’m told (Dave Murray) there wi...

Re: sparrows

I’m always glad to see your posts Delma! I haven’t seen a martin at my site but once. The weather is so disagreeable here that I wouldn’t stay either if I didn’t have too!!! I’m going to work on getting martins here at my house so I can do as you do,,,sit on my porch drinking hot chocolate and watch...

Re: First martin has arrived!

Thanks everyone! I haven’t seen them again but 1—I only check once a day at the satellite site.
2—The weather is so crappy that they might be hiding out in the gourds.
So I’ll just keep checking! Good luck everyone!

First martin has arrived!

My husband called from the golf course this morning to tell me I had martins there at my satellite site! Yep, an ASYM flew over and sat right above my car on the power line! He was gorgeous! I saw 3 others flying higher so I’m hoping my martin season has begun. Can’t wait to see them tomorrow! WooHo...

You have such a scenic site JHCox! Hoping this is your year! I tried for 11yrs at my home site before I put a rack up at our golf course by the lake and had martins in a week or less. You know what they say, location, location? I’m going to blast the sky with dawn song here at home. We cut down 2 hu...
