Crazy bird is driving me nuts!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by line6man, Apr 18, 2010.


  1. So far, with the paper taped on the window, the bird hasn't shown up yet.:hyper:

    I'll be leaving the house soon, so I'll have to see if he shows up later this afternoon or not.
     
  2. Solution:

    Extra sticky clear adhesive. Bird sticks to window, you kill bird. Problem solved.

    he could always borrow one of your tarantulas, I'm sure that would take care of it as well.

    Your problem has been discussed for eons on birding groups. One very common variant is birds attacking side mirrors on cars. Take away the reflection, take away the problem. Game over.

    Killing migratory birds is illegal in the U.S., but worse yet dooms you to playing Brown Eyed Girl at every gig you do for the rest of your life. Karma's a bitch...
     
  5. I guess I should make Ultra5 live up to his name as a 'birdeater' :ninja:

    The bird is obviously attempting a home invasion robbery. Its determination to get inside is meant to divert you from the fact that this bird is very dangerous.

    I suggest you get a cat, and only allow him to remain on the right side of your house. Teach said cat to regulary pop up in the window to scare the bird.

    Theres a bird at my work thats always standing on the sill pecking at the window. A guy in the art dept. printed a picture of an owl and put it up in the window. I stopped the bird for a while, but its back for vengeance.
     
  7. Ok, the paper on the window seemed to work fine yesterday, however, this morning the bird was going for the middle of the window, since the paper was covering his spot on the right side.:mad:

    The interesting thing though was that he was flying into the window quietly today, just a tap instead of the usual thunk.

    I wouldn't mind it if he just continues to fly into the window as quietly as he did, but I have a feeling he will start flying harder and harder into the window sooner or later.:mad:

    See if you can outsmart it. Try catching it without being present (IE a clever trap) :D And no sticky stuff on the window, that's unfair.

    I would advise you to consult the Wile E. Coyote book on trapping an annoying bird.

    Also, I've heard great things about the Sylvester J Pussycat Sr. method.
