Years ago when we lived in the desert we had a HUGE pigeon problem. Pest control guys only had stupid solutions, and although I am a bird lover I was getting a little p-o'd at all the bird poo rolling off my roof. My hubby pulled out the pellet gun, popped one, then tossed the dead bird up onto the roof. He heard through the grapevine that birds don't like being around dead birds. Did the trick and we only had to kill one bird instead of poisoning a bunch. Had to pop one about every two years or so.

BajaMama, I had the same problem when I bought my house 13 years ago... the lil' ol' lady who sold it to me had left the eave rafters and the semi-attic open for pigeons to nest in.... first year was an unholy mess of poop and early coo-calls waking me up. I had to bust at least half a dozen of 'em, plus get into the nests and clean it all out, board up the holes. You're absolutely right about them knowing this is now a kill-zone; my neighbor still has a bird feeder in the front yard and sky-rats, but NOT A ONE will venture onto my turf now. I haven't had a single pigeon in my area in over 10 years now.

Woodpeckers on the other hand are attracted to the scent of the urine/poop residue still inside the old nest areas, and this one in particular has been attracted to a 4x4 supporting beam... no bugs in the wood, he is just drilling to be his normal pesky little self... for now. Just a matter of time methinks.




If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If it don't stink, don't stir it....

and if it ain't disgusting, it ain't discussed.

Occasionally, here in Sandy Eggo there is a small red headed woodpecker that goes to town on the power pole in front of my house. I think its pretty cool.
