We’re learning a lot. I’ve never owned a vehicle that runs off of propane before, but heed my warning – they don’t start on cold days.
Birds continue to be active despite cold and rainy weather. Managed to snap a few shots of the Golden Swallow to get us rolling, but I promise better ones to come!
Rats are going to be a problem. We are considering trapping as well as more box placement on poles – allowing us to use more effective predator guards.
I believe that box design and placement is going to be absolutely critical for this species. Most of our traditional Golo-style boxes are allowing in too much moisture. Nests and box interiors are saturated almost on a daily basis. Lots to ponder.
