The Circular Monkey House Design Seems To Have More Problems !!!
While driving along a road in Sungai Patani I was attracted to view this BH with Minaret monkey house structure.
I remember seeing another unit somewhere in Padang Serai.
It must be by the same consultant.
As you can easily observed the monkey house was erected for those birds to enter.
But if you look at the wall of the BH there is a window opened while the opening on the monkey house is shut.
Hmm .... the minaret now is no more working while the new window is the preferred path.
What can we learn from this pictures?
I think the use of Minaret might not be a good choice.
I also feel that the roof of your monkey house should be flat or a bit slant to drain those rain water.
It would prefer to use the square or rectangular shaped monkey house.
The monkey house must be properly located and not too big and too high.
Usually younger birds love to use the site entrances as compared to top entries.
Other advantages would be the sound can traveled longer towards the horizon and not towards the sky.
If you have hexagonal tweeter on the monkey house rooftop it would be better.
The sound will be shooting at all directions.
For this particular BH the minaret is dead or redundant.
Sad for the BH owner but I hope the so called consultant will no longer opt for this minaret monkey house design.
(This was the old picture taken a few months ago. See no hole on the wall and the minaret looks cleaned and tidy)
(Now the mineret window were shut and hole opened on the wall)
(I zoomed in)
It seems that the minaret windows were lowered but still cannot bring in those birds so a new hole was opened on the building wall.
