ThrillCam received a new Martin house for Christmas that he just set in the ground, yesterday!
We’re hoping that a few lovely Purple Martin families will decide to move in soon.
(Apparently, Purple Martins are migratory birds and are scheduled to appear in our area about this time.)
So, just to be on the safe side, I’m posting a listing for all the birds to see:
A MUST SEE! This magnificent, multi-family dwelling is perfect for any fun-loving, bug-eating Purple Martin family. This is the perfect place to rest after your long trek to and from South America!
It has numerous openings, large enough for a Purple Martin to enter and exit, but too small for undesirables…landlords will also be on the lookout for those greedy house squatters: Starlings or House Sparrows!!
This place is HUGE! It’s big enough for you and 18 of your closest Martin family members and friends! WOW!
Too Good to be True! Placed in a desirable neighborhood, high enough that no predator (or large yellow Lab named Bear) can bother you. Set in a quiet cul-de-sac. Great neighbors. Has a pool! And, lots and lots of mosquitoes! Just what the family ordered!
No appointment necessary! Just fly by and check it out. …And stay for awhile!
I’m hoping that will work. (Let’s hope the birds don’t care if the fence is pretty or not…)
I’ll be sure to let you know if we have any new tenants!
