bird nuisance.
      #991005 - 02/06/12 07:31 PM
I'v boarded up the windows on both sides in the live room of my studio to keep noise in/out a bit more. It has worked up until now!

Since summer arrived birds have taken it upon themselves to sit on my windowsill all day and have a good ol' shout. Mainly its crows, so they're loud buggers! They go away when i bang on the wood but they're back within a matter of minutes. It's obviously unacceptable and something needs to be done.

Has anyone any (humane) suggestions for keeping the birds of my windowsill permanently?

There is the spiky stuff/wire that will do it..it is humane cos it acts as a deterrent after the first bird has lost its feet..only joking! Dave

Buy a camera and try to photograph them, you won't see one for weeks.

I was expecting this to be a follow-on from the 'Relationships and music' thread.

Still, the answer is the same: shoot them*.

Instant gratification is actually pretty good. It's fast as well.

I've got triple glazing (actually normal windows plus double-glazing I found in a skip). There's loads of it about during the summer when people are getting their windows changed. I don't know if that idea helps.

Otherwise, let them join the band, or, record eveything in slow motion then speed it up so you can't hear them.
