You Should Read About These Interesting Stories !!!!

If you have done nearly everything and the birds still refuse to enter your BH what else should you do?

Well I will ask the owner to look at selling the BH away and start a new one but this time try to minimise those faults that you did when you started the first unit.

Make sure the place chosen are below the flight path.

Make sure there are closed to successful BHs in the area.

Makes sure the land is flat and not too hilly.

Make sure the trees are not too close shadowing the entrance hole.

Make sure there is a water source where those birds can drink or wet themselves.

Make sure your new BH will have two types of entrances, the top and side entries.

Make sure the entrance are facing the right direction of the flying path.

Make sure you provide a sizable roving areas so that you can get lots of birds staying in your BH.

Make sure the nesting planks are installed as such they are perpendicular to the entrance hole.

Make sure the ceiling planks will give you the optimum number of nests per square foot.

Make sure the corners of those nesting planks are clean without any corners install until those birds have used them twice then you install the corner covers.

Use proper corner covers to minimise those odd shape nests.

Make sure the layout will give you the darkness that is required or favourable to those wild birds.

Make sure the internal temperature and humidity are within the required range.

Make sure your new BH is not too smelly due to those new cement you used to plaster the walls.

Apply enough fresh bird shits on the floor areas.

Install adequate internal sound tweeters and ensure that they are facing the right directions.

Those external sound tweeters must be properly placed so that any birds that entered your new BH will be drag to the back of your BH.

Get a few good external and internal sound so that you can play these sound at the right time and the season.

You also need to ensure that the ventilation holes are not opened during the early stages of your BH to minimise those hot and dry air polluting your internal micro habitats.

and so on ......

Well this friend of mine says that he wanted to give his last shot before selling the old BH.

What he did was to climb up to the roof near the entrance area and shouted at those wild birds.

He yelled and threatened those birds that if they refuse to enter his BH he is going to get a gun and shoot them one by one.

Well it seem that this newest tactic works.

"Harry after doing the yelling I got two new nests. From now on I am going to go up the roof to yell regularly."

Frankly I do not see how this strange technic can work but it did to him.

Well since it works I told him to keep doing as long as his neighbors do not call 911.

Another blog reader was on the phone with me talking about those duck eggs.

It seem that he read about one of my blog reader who put the duck eggs in two baskets and put them on the floor.

He and wife have a better idea.

"Harry we wanted to place those duck eggs into the swiftlet's nests. We nearly did but luckily you wrote about your friend in Nibong Tebal."

Can those duck eggs fit the swiftlet nest?

I am not sure but maybe it can.

Just wanted to share these strange stories so that you will smile and start your day in a good footing.
