The front lifts up to let them out to fly and they drop in from the top. The landing board folds up to close the trap so they cant get in. You can see it in this next picture.where does your open at? so the bird can get in? is it at the top where the hinges are? thanks for post pictures for me.
I definiately like this type of trap myself , simple and effective.I'm using a Sputnik but I want to built a bigger landing area to put around it.
