This is a brilliant idea! Wish I could do it with windy-dryer in my kitchen courtyard. Can you imagine the monkeys having great fun with it? What a hoot! Sadly that's exactly why it would be no use doing it - although the mosquitoes this year are bad! Thanks treker!
oddio- That would be fun, wouldn't it? The wind has been blowing here and it's a scream to watch birds attempting to make entry(s). They are just now beginning to make their choices.
Looks good! And I bet you get a kick out of giving it a good spin now and then?? (JUST kidding, Mr Audobon.)
pkh- LOL- Well,...let's hope so. If the birds aren't happy, ain't nobody happy. ;-)PLG- Thank You!ef- I AM interested. I am happy to know that Martins eat mosquitos. Billions, I would imagine. We don't see Martins in my yard, but the sparrows, chickadees, and Juncos are very plentiful.Ank- Thank You as well.linda...-Thanks for stopping by
This is great! Thanks for the info eaglefeather.
Just love this and Maria thanks for the info.
These are interesting, I looked it up and this is what I found out if you are interested.People have been making gourd birdhouses to attract purple martins for a long time. According to eNature.com, "the custom of erecting a martin house to attract these beneficial birds was practiced by the early settlers, and by the southern Indian tribes, who hung clusters of hollow gourds in trees near their gardens." These birds eat lots of mosquitoes.
Love it, Treker! (LOL, Pumpkin!)
Oh, my gourd! The birds must love you!
