    Birds Everywhere!!!!

    Thank you, looks like I have a ton of them and not the goldies, I'm kind of disappointed. There's quite a bit of difference, I must have been fooled by the yellow on the siskins. It's been a while since I had either. I'm still looking for my bird books to identify the others. It seems the older I get the better I get at hiding stuff from myself! Thanks again, Mark

    Eyeguy, do you have a picture of a winter goldfinch and a pine siskin? I'm not 100% sure I know the difference. Any idea what the birds are I posted about with the colored backs? Those are on the safflower seed heavy, not on the niger at all. I wish I had a lens to take a picture to show you.

    Birds Everywhere!!!!

    All of a sudden, the last week or so, I can hardly keep up filling the feeders! Redpolls by the hundreds and goldfinches so thick I fill the niger seed feeder every day. I thought Purple finches went away in the winter but I have something that looks just like them too. I also have some little finch type birds that some have either pinkish red backs under the wings or some are orangeish. Any idea what they might be? Those along with all the cardinals, nuthatches, and assorted others have me wondering what I'm going to spend my money on, their groceries or mine. I've got 4 times more birds than I had all last summer but I'm not complaining, they are a hoot to watch fight over the perches.

    Adding Holes To Ice Castle

    Just be sure to look underneath so you have the center of frame beams to cut the hole.

    Color Shading

    $15/$30 annually? That’s crazy when gps and maps in the boat are what most people use. I use it mostly as a toy just to get a handle on a new lake, or spot (get it close) an ice house. But for $30 a year, I’ll just take my GPS Or use my current program. I would pay the fee one time, but annually is nuts.

    Color Shading

    I’m a little confused on which upgrade they want us to do. Is it the boating app? I’ve always liked the good old $15 Minnesota Canada app I bought a few years ago, but now they keep saying upgrade?

    M18 Wont Cut 8" Hole

    Sounds like a dead or run down battery

    Hole liners would help too. Do you use them? I think some of that happens in all houses that sit a while with heat on. If a fan is forcing heat down from the ceiling into a marginally/uninsulated floor a ton of heat transfers. Just a guess.

    Where are you? Maybe just block the house up and don’t bank it at all. I’ve never heard of that problem before. Do you leave the heat on all the time when you leave?

    How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?

    Jiffy E6 Lightning Electric?

    The problem is no better or no worse than a 10 inch on any electric. Because of the shaver blades on an Ion they will be better than the aggressive chipper style of a SM.

    Jiffy E6 Lightning Electric?

    SM's are great augers as I'm sure the new Jiffy is also, but don't overlook Ion. If you've dealt with Artisans service you'll be a customer forever.

    Plus you're dealing with a great little company that operates right out of here in B town! All their products are manufactured in the USA too if that means anything to you.

    I tried to make the covers out of Lexan too. I know the couch cover system is expensive but nothing comes anywhere close to working as well. lexan isn’t cheap and the good heavy stuff isn’t the easiest thing in the world to work with. I really enjoy making things for myself, but this whole system was an effort in futility

    I tried buckets, garbage cans of different sizes, sewer pipe, and every other round object in the world to make sleeves. Save yourself the headache and go Buy the catch covers
