All the formed nests were on those tweeters !!!

Something unusual that proof that internal sounds are the preferred location to build their nests.

Yesterday I took a trip to Karak, Pahang and this trip was to conduct some maintainence at a BH that was put into operation about a few months ago.

The owner have very little hope with it but after some modifications the BH seems to have a number nests and lots of bird shit spots on the floor.

I wanted to use this BH for my Super Pheromone spray test.

While conducting the BH nests count I found something strange.

Nearly all those formed nests were on the top of those internal sound tweeters.

They prefer to erect their nest just above the tweeter and not on its sides or far away from the tweeters.

These tweeters played those internal sound.

The were a number of kite tweeters playing external sound with a lot of bird shit spots below it but not a single nest on them.

This phenomena is something that tells us that it is important to make sure that your internal sound tweeters are working at all time.

For a new BH they formed the right location where your first nests will be erected.

There is no proper explanations being made but my gut feeling are as follows:

When you stop your external sound say at 8:00 pm those birds that were clinging onto the kite tweeters will feel like a lost.

The external sound that pulled them into the house is gone.  This couple will have three choices.  The first is to stay put at the same location, the second is to fly out into the dark or the third moved to those internal sound tweeters.

Usually if your internal sound selected is right the couple will moved to the internal sound playing tweeters.

Their preferred selection is the loudest sound made from it.

To fly out into the dark will be their last option.  However if your internal sound sucks they will fly out of your BH.

A good internal sound should be packed with baby sound and these baby sound will make those birds feel very calm and less stress.

This selected location will become their favourite location soon and they will start putting some markings on it.

What happen when they entered the next day?

If they happened to re enter your BH the next day they will usually go straight to the spot which they are laid their marking.

If that place was taken by another couple they will usually fight for the same spot.

If the occupants were strong they will give up and start searching for a new tweeter.

Once these birds have stayed for about three to four weeks or more the urge to start a family will come.

This will be when they will need to start building a suitable nest for the female bird to lay her two eggs.

Mating will vigorous and the male will remove a number of feathers from his partner's wings.

Once you see these feathers on the floor you know that their mating have begun.

The female will lay her egg on the 8th day after eggs fertilization.

She need a properly build nest to lay her eggs.

Once she lay her first egg the sex orgy will stop and now this couple will become your permanent tenant.
