Birdhouse El Nino Buster !!!
Hotter days are here for the next three to four months.
This was what being announced by Natural Resources and Environmental Minister, Datuk Douglas Unggah Embas.
According to him the return of the El Nino phenomenon will last for three to four months. Those water reservoirs will slip in depth and if we are not careful there won't be enought water coming out of our kitchen taps.
Well how will this effect our BHs?
I am scared that many of our birds will run away far north. If you take no actions to cool your BH down they will soon be emptied. The moment the internal temperature hits above 32*C you will regret for not doing anything.
Try to do something to cool down the BH at least for the period.
You might want to cover your BH with those plastic sheets preventing direct sunlight hitting the external walls and roof area?
You can start to spray your BH external walls with water at a noon and everning?
Or perhaps you can try this interesting cooling technique that I call "El Nino Buster".
You can actualy DIY to keep the cost down.
Go to this you tube address and learn how to cool down your BH.
Once ready try to time the operation at the right time of the day where the heat starts to climb (from 10am till 9.00pm) but avoid the time when those permanent residents are coming home (6.00pm till 8.00pm).
You have nothing to loose but I am sure those birds will treasure your effort.
Frankly if I am the birds in your BH I will kiss your cheeks.
Well you might want to use yourself !!! How about try one and see how your kids admire your inginuity.
"Daddy you are damn smart. I want to be like you Daddy."
Remember you copy the idea from me. I should be the smarter guy.
"No son this was what I learned from the smart Uncle Harry."
He he he he ......
