Last night, July 23rd 2015, I was in communication with a BH owner whose BH is located somewhere in Betong Sarawak.
He seems to be doing pretty well with 300 nests in a small BH with two stories high.
He started by asking about how to improve the current nests numbers.
I told him to sketch his BH floor diagrams and whatsapp to my phone.
By looking at those sketches I told him to perhaps look at increasing the nesting planks by installing those cross woods.
Every line will add more nesting surfaces but more important is creating those 90* corners.
The corners will be populated within a few months and if by the cross wood installation create say 300 ninety degrees corners he will soon double the total nests population.
With 600 nests he should then focus on how to anchor his new birds that were hatched inside his BH.
His next question was on how to erect partitions.
I sketched a number of it and whatsapp to him.
He can now start erecting at those proposed areas.
The only sad thing about his BH is the poor location of the LAL hole.
Should have not waste those space.
The way to go is to continue improving and give special attention on how to anchor all those young birds that were hatched and brought up inside his BH.
If he can do or improve his BH conditions I am sure those young birds will not venture or move to his neighbors BHs.
Enjoy some sketches and photos send to me yesterday.
The two sketches given by him were the best among all since you can identify where those birds are staying.
By looking at the two you can understand why they are not going downstairs.
