She has carport with bird feeders hanging. She has bird feeders in the back yard. She has bird feeders in the front yard. I told her, why not at least place walmart plastic bag over the side mirrors and then you can take them off before you drive. Nope, she don't care. She drives every where with bird poo all over her car!
Let me guess, she uses her garages as storage areas - lots of people do that now. If people don't want to use their garage, there are alternatives, like car tents in the winter ...... But yes it's disgusting indeed, not only to look at, because it looks like bird vomit too but it stinks
though not as much as horse manure though, but horses don't sh** on cars
Apparently bird poo is corrosive ? That's what I heard, apparently if you leave the stains on your car or whatever, with time it can have corrosive properties and eat through the paint or fabric and leave permanent marks. So she really doesn't care ? What if that splosh is right in the front view, driver side, I bet she'd care
I hang one hummingbird feeder in the summer in the back yard but that's it.
The moment you feed the bids the entire flock will come, if you don't mind bird poo all over your yard, though birds might keep some bugs away from the yard, I think spiders do a better job at cleaning yards of insects, especially the large ones
You have to be careful because birds carry diseases. I love to look at birds but I do not want them all over my house and pooping all over everything. Plus, it's a waste of money all that bird seed she buys.
I have a garage and keep my car parked inside.
Good point on the disease part - and then there is a problem with hygiene in society, not a lot of people wash their hands in general - it's against principles, like wearing masks and all, so I cannot imagine people getting bird poo on their hands or touching it by accident and just wiping it off, and not washing hands properly afterwards, then they manipulate foods you eat - it's enough that a lot of people don't wash their bloody hands after they've discharged No. 2's. You can see that a lot in public toilets, they just get out of the stall and straight for the door
Those who are concerned of bird poo, well imagine this, the foods you love to eat at y our restaurant, there's human fecal matter content in them, to some degree, from minuscule amounts to more, so you are eating someone's poo with every bite !
