    What sort of air rifle will you be using?

    If you place the boxes facing east you will attract christian birds,if you wish to attract muslim birds then obviously the boxes will have to face Mecca

    AMAZING! but true(ish).

    Thank you for giving me my daily chuckle. I don't mind being suckered into this silly thread.....

    Your English robin won't tolerate any other bird on his manor - and least of all, the blue ***. He will fight the *** to its death.

    Your robin, given the choice, would prefer an open-fronted box secreted in shrubbery (at any height) or similar cover, whereas your *** requires a deep box with a narrow entrance no greater than 1 1/4" diameter with a Nor'Nor'-East orientation.

    So make up your mind: you're either a *** man or a redbreast man - you can't be both.....

    I have a peculiar hobby - lying on the lawn, legs apart.

    I tried that on a recent trip to Tel Aviv and ended up with a heavy dew upon me......

    Reminds me off the time I made a blue *** nest box. It was a hollowed out log with a small hole in the front and a little pitched roof on the top. Looked just the job for a blue ***. :) I felt a right ***.

    I thought you were going to say they sub-let it to some itinerant great ****.

    I was just thinking. Wouldn't it be interesting to see who has got the biggest **** in their garden.

    I have learnt a lot about **** and red breasts, thanx, one more question,,,do I need bigger nest boxes for bigger ****?

    Yes indeed. Great **** (Parus Major) require bigger boxes. Blue **** (Cyanistes caeruleus) relatively small.

    It's funny how they perk up as the weather gets colder.
