Hays Free Press e February 17, 2016 COMMUNITY Page 3C Continued from pg. 1C water for birds Birds started 2016 nest- ings early in Mountain City. On January 27th, James Polk sent Facebook word, "Bluebird couple checking out our accom- modations, keeping our fingers crossed that they like one of our nestboxes. On February 13th, the Face- book updated "Bluebird nest complete in first nestbox. Dreaded attack of mean and deadly House Sparrows. Blue- bird couple flee to backyard and start another nest. Hope for better results this time. LET THE TRAPPING SEASON BEGIN!!! One male house sparrow already trapped today and other traps are set. Last year I trapped 27! Indeed, the non-native House Sparrow brings destruction to native songbirds House Spar- rows do not simply usurp the nests of other species Many times, they destroy the eggs, nestlings, and parents with their strong beak. Indeed, tidbits bring life to Montage or 512-268-5678Thanks! Love, Pauline Ask Amanda Continued from pg 1C self pollinated) and Golden Delicious (600 - 700 hours) Peaches are well known as a Texas Hill Country crop and these smaller trees can fit quite nicely in many sub- urban back yards. They are beauti- fill when in bloom and are a good replace- ment for ornamental trees in the landscape. Peaches are self-fertile, so if you only have space for one fruit tree, this is a good choice. Pay close attention to the chilling hours because if they're too low the tree may bloom too early and those blooms could freeze. Best varieties: Belle of Georgia, Elberta, La Feleciana, Sam Houston (very pretty pink flowers), Redskin and Loring. Plums: If you enjoy fresh plums, Methley and Santa Rosa are good choices, and both are self-pollinating. Others may need a partner to produce. Bruce, Morris and Ozark Premier are other options Overall plums do well in our area. Pear trees are another fruiting option for the Hays and Travis county areas. You can get away with only planting one, especially for home needs, but if you plant two you'll get more fruit. Orient and Moonglow are good choices. Last, but not least is the official state nut of Texas - the pecan. (No political comments pleaseD. While our native pecan is good for a root stock and as wildlife food, if we want the big grocery store pecans we need to buy a grafted variety such as Choctaw, Wichita or Shawnee. Pecans make a wonderful shade tree and live for a long time. There are 100-year-o!d pecan trees on family property in Taylor that are just beautiful (and still producing). I do need to mention one pesky problem for pecans: web worms. Keep close tabs on the trees and break up the nest and spray with bT at the first sign of a problem. Happy gardening everyone!
