Re: Reaction to new housing

You should be fine. When I expanded a former site the previous years Martin checked out my gourd rack too along with the original Alamo house I had set up. Should be two more weeks here until mine arrive back.

Re: 2017 Migration

I have been watching migration patterns for over 10 years now.
They seem to migrate by tail winds and food source.

check out this map for tail winds. Everything is shut down right now.

I looked over the instructions at the manufacturing web site and agree with you that there is not any good pictures on how to connect the ultimate gourd rack. This is the one with the circle right?
