Iím not a hard guy to get along with , but my neighbour is driving me crazy .
My neighbour , a retired nurse and Born Again Christian , has a bird feeder in the tree on my side of the property in the front yard , as she wants all heavens creatures to be fed, but as long as their not crapping all over her property.
She is very easily offended and can go from feeling blessed to a total mental breakdown at the drop of a hat , so Iím trying to do this as diplomatically as possible .
I mentioned to her that they had to deploy a Hazmat team in Toronto, as a virus from pigeon fecal matter had killed two people last fall.
But she just fills up the bird feeder regardless . I wish I never mentioned anything,and just threw the feeder in the garbage at work , but it would be pretty obvious at this point .
I googled it,and pigeon crap is acidic and destroys your house shingles also .
I havenít asked her about moving it to her side of the tree yet , but I donít know how much that is going to help, as I believe the birds prefer my house as it is cottage style and it gives them a better view of danger . I open my door and theirs always about a dozen on my roof after she fills the feeder .
I swear sheís got a percentage of Downs ,and there is no solution . I googled it,and apparently thereís bird feeders that have less access to larger birds, but this isnít the issue ,as Iíve watched and the small birds are scattering the birdseed on the ground with the pigeons soon to follow .
Now Iím thinking one of those motion detection water sprayers . Has anyone had success with a certain brand?
I donít want it to detect the small birds on the feeder that are approx four feet up , but shoot the pigeons on the ground below the feeder .
Does this sound like a possible solution, other than moving ?
I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate
