glad the ribbons worked !!, i know some people use realistic plastic owls to scare some predators away, as well.

i didn't know until i was looking at swallow solutions.  they all fall under the federal migratory bird law.  BS to the max, but there it is.  it's SSS if you do it.

last year i would have suggested some metal strips for the woodpecker, but the other day i went outside and i could hear the sound of loud tapping on metal.  i thought someone was doing some kind of work somewhere.  later, i went out in my own yard and there was a woodpecker sitting on the metal gate drilling away.  since then, i hear him almost every day.  he's either confused, or he just took a liking to the sound.   :-D

There are only 3 birds not protected and they are house sparrows, starlings and pigeons.  All the rest are federally protected
