    I spent about 4 hours detailing my pick-up on Monday night. I came out this morning to leave for work and found this...

    I know who it was too! It was those occupy wall street ducks! They recruted the local starlings to do their dirty work!

    HA HA.....Just kiddin'...i know the feelin'. except cars are other side of the house, so thats not too bad! but the deck, patio, the 2 sets of outdoor furniture, pond stones, seating wall, and especially the deck railing are all splattered constantly....we give them food (bird feeders), drink, a place to bathe, and apparently need to build designated restrooms.....they're kind of ungrateful little peckers arent they? (no pun intended)

    The thing I don't get, is the driveway is nowhere near the pond, bird feeders, trees or anything else to sit on. My husbands very dirty Jeep was parked about 5 ft away and not a drop. It is a CON Spiracy I tell ya!!!

    laughing! they like clean cars. Luckily the birds feed at the feeders near the house and fly back into the woods to poop and eat the seeds they get from the feeder. They stay away from our cars, deck, chairs etc.

    Reminds me of the little gal that got a new mercades ,not much of a show out,she worked in the wrong section of town where car thiefs are rampant,everyboby told her it would not last a week before it was stolen ,she shows up months later ,wtith the car not amark or dent,but she have bumper stickers plastered every where on the car ,hood hub caps ,sides everywhere ,agast they asked why.Well she said ALARM SYSTEM ,was $1200.00 plus install ,stickers were free and she installed her self ,Plus I don't have to bother washing the car.Birds won't even crap on it!

    LOL, It's that polished shine, it gives them a bulls eye to target when they do Fly bys. Be thankful it wasn't one of those Big Ole Great Blue Herons. EWWWWWHHHH!

    I've been to the beach and seen blankets draped over sports cars. I never thought about it until you mentioned it. I wonder if they really do aim for shiny flashy cars. Oh and seagulls can bullseye a whole parking lot. Those things can get down right nasty.

    Seems the ones that hit the parking lot smash to smitherines ,and are hard to find in many pieces where as ones bounced off car are open,and you can eat all of it in one pc,
    pertty smart for a being that seems to just fly eat and crap,and your right the are or can be very nasty agressive,lately the most in that area are at the landfill or at seafood restraunts pickens are easier.not at the beach. On aug. 14 th the surf. temp was 52 df ,bathers did not have a wrinkle of sag on them ,when they came out of the water,at old orchard beach,Maine after a few minutes in the sun it was a different story!
