Re: 9 years ago today

Billie I think I know how you feel! I have had a few visitors my self and they just move on as well. The weather here is snowy, cold, and windy, last year this time my pm house was vibrating from activity, I don’t know where they go when it’s this cold and it’s not supposed to warm up for a few more...

Re: Dealing with neighbors while trapping sparrows

Brent I have to agree with Jim some people will only do and think what they want no matter what you say, I have a neighbor that has a purple Martin house and he does nothing to try and control the sparrows, his house is half full of sparrows and the rest are martins. I tried explaining the concept o...

I’m from southern sask and were having some crappy weather as well just wondering where you purchase your crickets from? I live in a small town where a cricket would have to be dugout of the ground that died last fall! In other words there aren’t any.

Re: T14 Full

Yes I’ve often thought about why they travel that far as well, I guess since they like to be around people they must think like people, and some people just love to travel. According to the scout map there are martins all over Canada already, last year I had 12 pairs and it was my first year as a la...

Re: T14 Full

Congrats on your full house! My T-14 hasn’t had a purple Martin foot print on it yet, it’s hard to believe your birds are nest building and I haven’t seen a Martin yet, hope you have a great year.

Good for you! I have only had martins for one year but that is one of my goals to get some banded some day and watch and wait for one to come back, that is amazing for them to pin point exact locations, I just hope my birds never got hit by a 747 passenger jet. Good luck in the days to come.

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

Archer Just trying to have some fun, I know there is lots of time and those who have colony’s for 10 years will always have there early birds come home first. Every year is different when you look at the stats on the scout report, I didn’t get any martins till the 27 of April last year so all I can ...

Hi Billie I have been hoping for you ever since I seen the first scout report in Wisconsin, keep your hopes up they will come. I’m still waiting also they are here in other parts of the province just not at my place.

Re: 2 of first 4 returning are banded

Good for you Ed! That’s good to know I guess it’s a fact that they come back to the same nesting place every year. It’s amazing that they can pinpoint the same place year after year.

Thanks for the info on the sparrow traps I have to build one or buy one, we have way to many sparrows in our town some body has to do something, they are taking over. I will use your tips when I get a trap.

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

I carumba your sparrow trap looks impressive! Where did you get the plans from to build it? I need one we have a very high population of sparrows and I need to build a trap. What part of Sask are you from? I’m in southern sask as well.
