    I thought someone was asking where you can buy a nice sparrow spooker. I ordered one with my DRST, I like it so well I just ordered another one. The Mylar streams are silver on one side and red on the other, they look cool blowing in the wind. It was super easy to install and made so much better than the one I had concocted. It gets a 5 star from me. You can view it at sparrowtraps.net

    Judy, glad you like your spooker – fortunately my hubby is handy and we made our own. I have 3 or 4 to use at different boxes if necessary. Yes, my Mylar is silver on one side & red on the other. Yes, they work great and I would NEVER be without it or the wren guard!

    Hey ladies just a quick note I made my spookers out of dowl and bought from the good old dollar store the “happy birthday” banners and cut them up. I assume this is also mylar – or a close enough twin that they have always done the job for me. made three spookers for under $10 and attached them with pipe clamps.

    Way to go Country Girl. I would be completely broke if we didn’t make our own BB items – all houses, spookers, wren guards & even my cage feeder. Buying the worms is my only bad expense (got another 10,000 coming in a day or two).

    That’s excellent you guys are handy and it sounds like they turn out nice! The price is definitely right. Guess I lack talent in that area.

    Carol….My Hubby was born in Butler, MO, he and his family moved to MI many moons ago. Do you know where it is? Just curious.

    Judy, yes – Butler is only about 45 minutes from us – small rural community & very nice.
    Yes, it is nice to be able to make our own projects & also most minor house repairs. But age is creeping up on us and it is not quite as easy.
    In addition to my bluebirds, my 2nd hobby is flower gardening – have a pretty large perennial garden & hubby has vegetable garden in our back yard which takes a lot of our time. But I love being outdoors so this works out great!
