    Tammy, thanks for the feedback/info. I’m on a steep learning curve.

    My trap is baited with pop corn and millet. Some popcorn is on the top of the cage to draw them in.
    I have had a suction cup seed feeder on our kitchen window for years. It is a very busy feeding station, mostly sparrows. Just below it is a forsythia bush neatly trimmed (flat top).
    I’m considering taking down the window feeder and placing the trap on to of the bush.

    Yesterday I cleaned out the t-14 of nests, eggs and peeps. Today it is busier than ever with nest building flights.

    Question; If the sparrow population is severely reduced, and no Purple Martins are in the area, what birds would nest in a T-14?

    Thanks, Ron
