There are some new rules around our yard. Crows (?) mess on our windows and the sides of the house. I'm leaving a little brush and pail of water out there: "Please clean up your mess!"

This reminded me of a sign in the pool store: We don't swim in your toilet, please don't pee in our pool."

Anyway, I guess I'll have to clean it up!

They wont listen I have tried! haha!!
Birds do what they want, where they want and that's it!
Loose bits of tin foil scares them if that's any help
Take care,

Do crows do this, too? I mean, I know pigeons are famous for leaving their mark. Well, I suppose all birds do, to some extent. Come to think of it. But if you have a gang of crows.... yish.

Please have a lovely Midsummer Night's Eve.

Take Joy, as Dear Tasha said!

Tell me if you get that to work, I'd like to train some mockingbirds around here... they don't care what it is!!!
Just hope the rest of the birds don't decide to join them!!!

Hi Mari-Nanci - I don't have many crows but from the size of the evidence I blamed them! Plus, they are my least fav. bird so I'll blame them.Thanks, we will enjoy.
Technonana - welcome - I don't think I've ever seen a mockingbird.Does anyone remember a song about mockingbirds? My Mom used to sing a lot to/with us and I vaguely remember one with a mockingbird.

Leaving a bucket for the crows! :D

I do things like that, too. Once I put out a notice for the chickadees; "Here's a rag. Take your nest material from it, not from my seat upholstery."

It didn't work, and the neighbours probably thought I am crazy. (So, what's new?)
