    Hi everyone,

    My name is Lee, my wife and I moved to an old farmhouse near Arcadia, Indiana last year. We are in the process of trying to establish a purple martin colony and bluebird nests on our property, so all the HOSP’s and starlings have to go! Will be a long fight but we are determined. Glad to have found this forum!

    Welcome, Lee! Glad you found us. Things will get busy pretty soon with the warmer weather on the way.

    Hi, Lee. Several of us here also have purple martins. Have you had a purple martin colony before? There’s a good facebook page for that. There are many helpful members. https://www.facebook.com/groups/47364000325/

    As a kid we had a purple martin house with 1 or 2 nesting pairs. I’m a member of the PMCA so I’m trying to get all my ducks in a row and have luck the first year with my new colony. Have a Trendsetter 12 house with the SREH holes so hopefully all goes well there!

    Cool. Sounds like you are all set! Let me know how things go. I’ve been doing I for maybe 8 years but keep my colony small. 16 gourds.

    Pami, I am SO glad you are here on the new forum, as it is nice to have someone in the same state/weather. This past 3 days were so warm, (actually in the 70’s the past two days at least) that ALL the birds are beginning to think about nesting. My blues pair were checking out their favorite house, and so were the HOSP. I am keeping a close watch today (Sunday) to see if I need to set the Van-Ert trap for those HOSP, as the blues are also investigating a different box. Let the fun begin!!

    Hello everyone!!!
    Its been a while. I’m Lexi from southern Virginia. I’m VP of the Virginia Bluebird Society and president of our local bird club. I have been loving bluebirds for as long as I can remember. My maternal grandmother and great uncle were bird lovers and started me at a young age. I continue to learn something new from our feathered friends everyday.

    Pami, my blues were around all winter, also, parents & 3 from last nesting. They are here every morning & late afternoon to eat my home made peanut butter suet. Also have a seed feeder where LOTS of cardinals come, along with doves, finches, juncos, white-crowned sparrows (these 2 also come to the suet feeder), and of course, those pesky HOSP. Yes, my boxes are ready & waiting, also. I have put out a new modified Gilwood box – had one of them last year and it was popular, lst with the blues and then TRES built a nest. Hope you have a good season.

    Hello! I’m Lori in Round Rock Texas (Central Texas-near Austin)…new to the Bluebird Cafe and new to bluebird boxes. My husband bought a box for me, which we installed a few weeks ago – using specific instructions on location, predator baffles, etc. Anyway, I am thrilled to announce we have a pair and so far 2 eggs!! This has been more exciting than I could have imagined. Unfortunately, she as chosen a week that has rain and storm predictions all week long. Is there anything I need to do to protect the box or help in some way? The box is new and seems to be leak-proof for the most part…just want to make sure I do what I can.
    Thanks!!
