The owner of this newly operated BH wanted me to do something so that those birds that entered his monkey house will go straight into the nesting room.
If you are new and never owned any BH you might have some difficulties in trying to understand how tough it is to pull those birds over the roof.
Once they reached up there you than focus on how to pull them into your entrance hole or the monkey house structure.
Once they entered the monkey house you then need to think of ways to ensure that they will go direct into another opening that will leads them into the nesting areas.
If all the above went fined you would than need to think of ways to ensure that when they entered inside there must be ways to get them to stay as your permanent tenant.
The trouble is that you need to be an expert to do all these acts in order to make your BH full.
I took the BH owner inside his monkey house and showed him what was actually happening, about two months ago.
Due to the dimension of the monkey house, the owner uses those staircase air vent, those birds that entered were not bothered to find the entrance hole into the nesting room but immediately after reaching the other wall they flew back out of the monkey house.
Twenty entered and twenty will fly out.
Why are they not entering the opening leading to the nesting room?
No body can answer your question unless you can ask those birds, I jokingly told the owner.
Hmm why don't we lower the ceiling of the monkey house? If we lowered the ceiling we might have a chance to stear those birds towards the entrance hole.
Make it slanting and the next thing to do is to relocate the current entrance hole on the opposite wall.
After giving a long thought he agreed to what I told him.
"Okay Pak Harry can you start the works as soon as you can?", his first sentence.
Well well well. It sound easy but to carry out the two scope of works might have a lot of changes inside.
We need to relocate a few partition inside the nesting room, rearrange those tweeters that are affected, remove those fake nests and relocate them, change the position of those humidifiers and etc etc.
The worst thing to happen was to redecorate the main hall to a nesting room with additional crossings, tweeters and fake nests.
That was what happened to this BH.
I arrange with my workers and we managed to get the BH back into operation mode within 2.5 days.
It was a tough and tiring work but managed to get it fixed.
Now let see if those birds are still finding excuses not to enter his nesting rooms........
