If you lower it 2 to 3 feet, they won't act like they even noticed. Leave it down until the threat of strong winds are over. If I lower mine down for a thunderstorm overnight, I don't raise it back up until the next afternoon when I come home from work, so I'm not interfering with ther social time.
Ok, That’s what I’m going to do. Thanks for the advice.

I put my condo house up this February, I put 16 gourds up last year. I saw a few visitors last year, nothing until today I saw 6 sitting on my perch I made for them, is this a good sign they will nest this year or next? I live in Jonesville SC

Don't get to excited yet! But anytime a Martin comes to visit it's a great sign. If they start investigating your housing and spending the night you are in business! This time in the cycle they are most likely looking for a nesting site!
