I've been watching out the window all morning, watching the hole in the shed, and have seen nothing. I got my workclothes on to go outside and begin building --a friend has commissioned a small bat house. When I stepped out onto the back porch, I noticed the shiney metal door on the starling trap was down, signifying the trap was sprung.

Figured it was just a sparrow. Caught a few in it hanging on the shed last year. Went out, but didn't hear anything banging around trying to get out, until.... When I moved the trap to check it, I heard the racket. Having shut the shed door in case "whatever" I caught got out, I opened it. It was big! I pulled it out and it was my first starling of the year! Excellent!

My new strategy worked! hahahahahahahahaha I couldn't be happier!

Good job!

It's nice when things work like they're supposed to. One less nestling killer out there!

Well, well, well... So far, I've caught three starlings, and two male sparrows in the large box-trap that is installed inside the shed. Now, if I can only get rid of the sparrows out by mom's. Perhaps I can get out there some time this weekend and fix that problem.
