One house full of martins building away but shunning the new house so far. Funny thing happened with the orioles. Last spring we had bunch and then they seemed to disappear and our neighbor had lots of them. I told my wife they must have better jelly. FF ,this year , wife and I were talking a few days ago, wondering they weren't eating the jelly on the deck but the one a ways away and she said "maybe they are scared of the owl" I'm like what ?? Sure enough Wife has/or/had this fake horned owl to keep birds out of her strawberries. I took it away and within an hour we had a few pairs on the deck but nothing like last year . I think we have 3 pair this year compared to too many to count last year. Those things really work .
My office view today. The jar was empty so I set it down to get a spatula and an Oriole was in the jar eating when I came back so I just let them fight over it and clean it out.
