Re: A Promising Start Pt. 2

FarmerHarv - your story sounded a lot like mine til you got to the part of actually seeing purple martins. I still have not seen any this year yet. Sounds like you're off to a good start. Good luck!

Re: Mortified by Bad Timing

I'm so glad it all worked out for you and your purple martins. I can't imagine your stress from it all. And yes - discretion is definitely important with what we have to do for our birds. :) I hope your martins like their new location even better than before. Have a great season!

Re: Subies?

lol!!! I hope your request ends up showing more subs further north than what is on the map, currently. I haven't seen one yet this year at all either.

Re: Crazy in New concord,oh

That's the way it looks, Vince. Unless there are people who aren't reporting, which is always a possibility. I'm waiting in Wisconsin for them, too.

Thank you, everyone! And Dave, what an awesome story! I'm so glad to hear whomever is living there now is also hosting purple martins. I'm betting your friend is looking down smiling. :)

Re: 2 of first 4 returning are banded

How exciting for you to know that 2 of your banded birds have returned!!! I don't know of anyone around here who bands but if I see any with bands, I'll for sure report it here.

Re: New landlord survey

Thanks, Dave! I know what you're saying and keep reminding myself of that but also watch and wait with hope that this is the year. It will happen - just don't know when. This isn't my first year of waiting - but hopefully it'll be my last. :)

Re: Ed Svetich

If it was only that easy - send them my way. :) My friend down here (Browntown) has 7 as of a couple days ago - they aren't in any rush to come this year, the way it looks. But like you - we have had winter this past week so it's ok if they take their time - so long as they eventually show up. He go...

Re: New landlord survey

I am one and I have not seen even one yet. Good luck to you and all the others who are trying to start a colony and to all of those who already have successful colonies - I wanna be you. :)
