Re: Just had a PM killed by starling...

I'm so sorry you had to see that happen. I 'm sure you musta been totally shocked to realize it was a starling and not another PM. It's so sad when these things happen. :(

Re: Southern Indiana Arrivals

Hooray - I'm sure you're loving it!

I'm impatiently waiting for them to get to Wisconsin. I am only about 10 miles north of the Wisconsin/Illinois border so it won't be long now. :)

Re: Advice needed on what to order

Thanks MartinBoy and elyin-lowe........I appreciate your advice.

So - how did you attach the plates to the factory entrance plate? With screws or glue?

Thanks again!

Advice needed on what to order

I have 4 Troyer vertical gourds with round holes on the tunnel. What do I order to replace these with SR holes? Would it be the same item as for the Troyer horizontals? I can find that easy enough - but I can't see what I need to order for the veritcals. Thanks!

Question about feeding trays

https://www.purplemartin.org/shop/product/ft/feeding-tray/ I'm just wondering if, when it's windy, do you lose the feed and/or the egg/oyster shells that are on the tray? Is it blown off the tray? It only has 1 1/4 inch high sides on it - that just doesn't seem like it would be able to keep the wind...

Troyer Tunnel Door Stops

Is this something new? I don't recall seeing them in the past.

Anyways - how do they work? I mean - do they slide on somehow?

Thanks

Re: I’ve inherited Martins! How to do the right thing?

If you're going to get something new but still keep your current house, perhaps you would like to try some gourds on a gourd rack. I just switched to a gourd rack with a winch last year - it makes it so easy to raise and lower. I am getting up there in years, too, but I have no problem with the winc...
