Thanks.
I have a purple one. Trim is dark purple. The house is a lavender, but the lavender is too dark, so it didn't turn out the way I wanted it. The Martins love it though and that's what matters.

They would all be rare to me, because this is the first year I have paid attention and put up feeders. Cute little bugger anyway. I've seen as many as 7 of them whizzing around and chasing one another. Fun to watch. Thanks Louise and Connie.

Yep Berndog, I think the T-14 is the most attractive house going. It is to me at least. I have three of them. I have probably a few over 30 birds this year. Lot's of vacancies. I use round holes and lots of 22 ammo. :grin:

Sparrows

I haven't trapped a sparrow since Jan 20, until today.
Caught two males and one female in my repeating trap.
One male with my Ruger.
Must be close to courting time for them.
No Starlings lately.

Starling Stew??
I've had freshly harvested Starlings and the cat's wouldn't even eat them. Must not be very tasty.

Mark,
I have two little dogs that roam free and the Martins don't pay any attention to them.
