My Birds Like Paper Fake Nest.....Side

If you still remember my earlier article that I made paper fake nests for my old BH but is....too too big. Somehow the birds like it and they made a full nest. 80% of the out of size paper fake nest were booked my birds.

Some time doing thing slightly differently can make a new discovery. Do you prefer your birds make nest inside the paper nest of outside the paper nest? I think I have some new idea to improve the Out of size Paper nest. Let me try first. You can also try out and share with us if you have some good results.

How good is your BH Micro Condition?

If you think your BH micro is good, please check again during this April and May month. Before I started my BH, I did a few round checks using my data logger and the results are ok. Below is the Feb and Mar data.

Last weekend when I checked again the record, I was surprised to find out that my new BH temperature hit 32.5degC. That is 2degC higher that what the max allowable BH temperature.

I did a check at my Old BH which is next to it and I found that the overall temperature is 1degC lower than the new BH. You can observe the temperature curve (Red) for both BH are the same. You may asked why the humidity reading at mid-April very low. That is because the ultrasonic humidifier that I am using the fuse was blown. After replaced the fuse the humidifier is working now.

Why my old BH reading is 1 degC lower? I guess is because about 50% of old BH's ceiling has additional Rockwool layer that I installed from the left-over from my new BH. So my old BH has 2" styrofoam, 2" Rockwool MPS, new and old ceiling board and aluminum foil below the industrial roof.

So, please make sure your BH has data logger below to keep track your BH micro condition. You can get the data logger from me. Please email:

New BH Results after 3 months

Finally my son exam was finished and I have time to go back to my homo town to visit my BH. There are 5 nests marking after 3 months. It could be more as it is very difficult to check those fake nest.

In my next blog, I will update what I had found quite series problem and need to rectify ASAP.

How I installed my Tweeters at Roving and Nesting Entrance

Few readers asked me to comment about the recent article posted by James's blog and Pak Hen's blog regarding the external tweeters installation at the entrance.

For me, I never thing so far...My reason is very simple when I installed my own external tweeters at my Roving and Nesting entrance.

1. I use good tweeters that can cover freq range from 1Kz to 16kHz
2. I use min 4 tweeters to make sure the sound is loud and clear.
3. I use good external sound to pull the birds into my BH. Not just playing at the "Magic 4".
