I'm now using the Van Ert nestbox springloaded design for my BRAW NABS style bluebird nestboxes. The installation is very easy and fast and the operation appears to be foolproof as the trip bar is set very low ensuring the bird is well inside the nestbox when tripped. Like other designs, the entrance hole is blocked enough so the bird cannot escape but still allows air to circulate. This way if you captured a bluebird in error it can be released readily. I tested the traps this morning and within 30 minutes was two for two. For those of you looking for a dependable design you can reach the creator Floyd Van Ert at fvanert@xxxxxxxx Good Birding, Terri Welisek Sherwood, WI Calumet County #################### You received this email because you are subscribed to the Wisconsin Birding Network (Wisbirdn).
