The Sedili BH revamp operation begun about 4 days ago.
I was very happy that the mobilization operation went smoothly and those raw materials ordered finally arrived at site.
The first thing that I wanted my boys to attend was to re activate the Monkey house sound system.
Due to some unforeseen circumstances the owner shut down the entire monkey house and on his own initiative opened a new entrance hole on the BH wall facing the west.
This led to many complications to the BH.
The most important was the location of the LAL (connecting opening for birds to fly from top floor to lower floors) become very far from the entrance hole.
The owner also did nothing to the internal sound tweeters. All his BH internal sound tweeters were facing the opposite direction from the new entrance hole.
He was also unsure on how the birds once entered the entrance hole should have enough space to turn. The current configuration seems to be very sharp.
Have a good look at these sketches.
Sketch no one is the current configuration and the second sketch will be the improved configuration.
The above took less than 2 hours to complete.
What I need to look at now is how to configure the entire floor rooms allocation.
Most people have very little clue on how to get those bright light blocked.
Remember we need to make sure the favourite nesting areas as dark as possible.
The rule of the thumb is to get a darkness that when you stand two feet apart you cannot see each other during day time.
Well if you wish to know more I will write more in my coming articles.
For now I am very greatfull that the BH seems to be getting its life back.
Just view this clip taken yesterday.
The monkey house which was once abandoned now comes to life:
