Re: Hello all. New member. Here are the houses I made.

Fuzzmeister the trap I built is a repeating one that is probably most similar to the DRST trap. It is the size it is based on what scrap I had in the shop. The solid board on one side is to keep the neighbor from seeing the birds that are caught in case they are sparrow lovers. I enjoyed building it...

Re: Hello all. New member. Here are the houses I made.

Archer, we are in a small town in southern Saskatchewan, about 100 kms north of the border. The houses are fixed on the poles and stay up all season. I will go up a ladder and help out if I see a problem and I control the sparrows but otherwise the Martins are on their own. They did well last year a...

Re: Hello all. New member. Here are the houses I made.

The bird houses have a door that opens for removable nest boxes. The compartments are 6" x 12" each. The entrances are on two sides only so that they face our porch area for viewing and the house size is kept manageable since it is not on a winch system.
