Tim, I think this is a great idea! Hopefully some folks that have tried supplemental feeding on a platform and haven't been able to entice their Martins to it will give this a try. Thanks for sharing this information!... :grin:

PS: Good job on taking care of this little girl.... :grin:

Congratulations Loco! Isn't it a wonderful feeling when they start accepting your offerings! :grin: :grin: My Martins didn't like scrambled eggs either at first, but now I think they prefer them over the crickets. Keep trying with them. After you've flung a few crickets, switch over to the eggs. Jus...

Hi Jack, I had a Tree Swallow show up hear March 18. This is the first year I have ever seen one around here. He had been trying his best to claim a gourd on both of my gourd racks, but my Martins kept chasing him off. I had put a gourd on a Shepherd's hook last year trying to attract a Tree Swallow...

ASY Male in Western KY!

Hi folks! I had a beautiful ASY Male show up this afternoon. :eek: This is 9 days earlier than last season. Thank goodness I put my gourds back on the rack yesterday!

Mary, thanks for posting about the oyster shells. I've put out pullet size poultry shells, but my birds don't seem to like them. They eat the fire out of the eggshells I put out for them. I'm going to check my local farm store and see if they carry the oyster shells. Gus, thanks for providing the li...

Hi lightway, Welcome to the forum. I don't know if it's too late for your area. Maybe someone will jump in here and let you know. If it was me, I would go ahead and put up your housing, so the fledglings from this season can look at it on their way through. You may get some of them when they come ba...
