Question about arrival of ASY at established sites

When you first get your 1st ASY birds back, how long does it take for most of your birds to arrive back at your site. Are you talking days or a few weeks. And what's the gap between all the adults arriving back and then the SY coming in ?

Doug, I closed up one hole in the house and put a trap in the other one after I discovered the nest this am. I'm trying to leave my 4 gourds open because I think soon SY should be coming to LA. Should I close up the gourds too because of the titmice ? And as for feeding my song birds, do you think i...

Emil, I am new to the forum and PMCA. Last year I put up a purple martin house. I've read much of what PMCA post on their site, and I read a whole lot of what's posted on the forum. You can pretty much tell right away who's experienced and who has great knowledge about PM and you are probable one of...

Question about Titmouse and PM

I have an unestablished site, I've noticed lately that titmouse birds have been going in and out of my house and gourds. This didn't happen last year when I put up the house. What should I do ? I have one feeder in my yard that I put black oil sunflower seeds in for my song birds. Is it better to ta...

Linda Thank you for the information. I was able to get the website from your post in 2008 for the 24 hour hand warmers. The other site was no longer available. And thanks to everyone else that responded to my post. Wish me luck this year, had visitors last year, but no sleep overs. Hopefully Tony an...

question on using hand warmers in nest

I looked up hand warmers on the internet, and found one that last 10 hours and one that last 18 hours. Which is better to use? And, when putting them in the house or gourd do you cover them with nesting material or something else ?

Heritage Farms Quad Pods

I have a heritage farms quad pod (2 sections, 8 holes altogether) with 4 gourds hanging below. My question is, it comes with internal predator guards which I think is a great idea, but I don't know whether I should wait until I have birds nesting before I put them in, or put them in at the start. I ...
