Dual Entries BH At Bumbung Lima, Kepala Batas !!!

While having a weekend at my home town, Sungai Patani kedah, I was invited to view a newly operated BH on a piece of land in the middle of a padi field.


This particular owner indicated that his BH was empty for almost 1.5 years and he needed some opinions what can be wrong with his BH.


I was very honoured to be given the opportunity and I was right on time at Bubung Lima, Kepala Batas very early in the morning.


"Pak Harry please wait for us at the bridge and will take you there."


On the way managed to snap a few BHs in operation.


The one that attract me most was this school look alike with dual entries, the top entry and the side entry.


The right side on the roof top is the side entry and to the left is a top entry.  


The color used seems to be like a school.




Just beside the road there was this unit that seems to have more birds as compared to the rest.


Its monkey house has at least three entrance holes and all were in the middle of the walls.


It has a very effective sound and the birds were flying in and out all the time when I was at the side of the road waiting for my client.




Have a look at them and the unit I was asked to inspect.


Operated about 1.5 years ago with not a single nest.


What do you think went wrong?


The BH belongs to two owners.  One of the owner has a number of BH with successful results.


How come this one was not doing well?




More spice to this delima was that they have a similar sized unit about 10 meters away.


I think it was in a similar situation.


What do you can be wrong to these two units?


The more you enter these kind of BH the more you understand why many BHs failed to get those birds to enter the house.


The key issue is the understanding of what those wild birds wanted and refuse to before you design your BH.


Keep learning and one day you will understand what I am trying to say.
