Bird poop on your car

Anyone else have a problem with birds continuously shitting on their cars?

I don't ever park under trees either so I'm having a hard time understanding why there's white streaks all over my car literally every other day. Are birds attracted to certain colors or something?? This happens at least twice a week, & it's unbelievable. My car is an IBM which is already hard enough to keep clean as it is.

If you actually stop & think about the odds of bird shit landing on your car when it could land literally anywhere else in the entire world, it's really ridiculous. Why can't I beat these same odds when I buy lotto tickets?

oh no, not at all, they should ALL DIE.

2 weeks ago, wash car, dry car, roll hose up, back car into garage, walk around front and bird crap all over the hood/qtr panel. THAT FAST! Grrrrrr! They were watching, and waiting.

I know what you mean. 2 weeks ago I just finished washing my car and while I was putting up everything, a bird crapped on my newly washed car!

I seriously think there is some Secret Society amongst birds that delegates when and how to shit on nice cars. They probably treat it as an art form.

Like, they probably have little bird awards ceremonies celebrating the "be-all-end-all" shits.

"And the winner is... FEATHERS MCGEE for the outstanding poo he took on Ralph Lauren's Bugatti Atlantic Type 57 WHILE at the Pebble Beach Concourse D'Elegance!"

Needless to say, the birds shitting on our Camaros are small timers. Trying to make it big. :\

Birds at my work come sit on my mirrors and crap all down the side of my car. It's crazy... seems like every day there's a pile of poop. I also have no trees around...

My DD stays outside and it gets bombed daily. As does my driveway, patio, side of the house, etc. When I first bought the house 9 years ago there were a pair of robins hanging around. Now there about 6 pair, plus a crap load more birds. Got tired of pumping up the pellet rifle so I've taken to my 20 gauge with 7.5 shot. They're starting to thin out a little. Just hope they don't see Hitchcock's 'The Birds' and start getting ideas, lol.

I'm pretty sure birds see the color red just want to deficate all over it.

I'm glad the birds have all their attention on my 1 year old dog instead of my car. My pup has eaten 3 babies already this spring so needless to say they are after her!
