This morning two interested martins investigated my Martin house for about 30 minutes or do. They keep attempting to enter the Spar-o-Door trap. They have tried to enter the SREH, but so far have not been successful. Here's hoping they return.

Here I am again.... Still hoping! Today a pair of martins visited my house. By observing their examinations of the house, I thought sure they would stay. Hopefully they will return later.. Very gusty High winds and getting quite warm. It should be in the upper 80's today and in the 90's the remainde...

I heard the familiar sound of a Martin while feeding my horse and spotted what I think is a SY-F. I wasn't certain so I walked to about 20 ft from the Martin house and stood there and stared so I could better identify. Well, that must have scared her and of she flew. That was about 2 hrs ago and I h...

Mother's Day

Several intermittent sightings of SY-M circling and landing on my Martin house. None took up residence though, which leaves me very disappointed :-( . Darn! I wonder if there is still hope for me to be successful in some calling my location, home.

MAYBE SOON??

I am slightly encouraged. Wed morning, yesterday, I spotted a lone martin pecking, examining, flying about my main house. Did not see him today, bit I have been with my husband in the hospital and not at home.
But at least I know my place is not a pure pariah to them.. Here's hoping!!!

How encouraging!!! Maybe I should open up the house and try to be diligent cleaning out the HOSP?? AND, making sure my Excluder II holes are the right size!! I had some lookers at the end of last year's season as they were migrating back, so I am hopeful. None entered the holes though, Soo I really ...

Any Kansans have subbies yet?? Since my site has been inactive for the past 4 years, I have my house still closed up except for the Spar O Door trap.

Driving around Augusta Lake I spotted one lone male flying around the lake area where there are many Martin landlords.

None at my house though!!

My house is still closed up, waiting for the SY"s to come in. This is a new site for the martins, so not expecting ASY's even though some KS landlords founding birds were ASY. I didn't want to fight the HOSP Soo am waiting a bit longer to open up.

Can someone post a pic of a go-no go gauge, and where can they be purchased? Will this gauge work for Excluder II entrances?

I messed up. If a site was active last year, report only the ASY birds, not the SY.
