Well, it's for sure we've been targets. I have a whole page about it on my Cardomain site.

http://www.cardomain.com/ride/296394/7

Robins are very territorial and some will attack their own reflections. When they are working themselves up to attack, they poop. Here's my nemesis:



And he sits on the mirror on one side or the other, poops all over it, then jumps down on the door at the base of the side window, glares at his reflection in the mirror, and attacks!



My wife has a defense I call "car condoms", lol -- actually they're cheap shower caps. The bird doesn't like the feel of them under his feet and takes right off when he lands on them. Even if he were to look he can't see in the mirror though!

After having my truck 6months i hit a goose that was in mid flight. he was running along side the rode, took flight and crossed into my lane. With a nice thump right in the middle of my hood leaving a nasty goose *** print. Crap on my truck and I hit back.


yes the goose was fine he never stopped flying

I just cleaned my truck big time on friday since I had a half day. Scrubbed her up a ton and put a ton of wax on her. Took care of the brushguard, sprayed the exhaust and did the tonnue cover...

Today at work I parked 3 stalls from a light post. It's MY spot as I say. Well the damned wind was blowing so that when all the seagulls on top of the light post would take a dump it'd land on my cover. It looks like a freaking dalmation right now. Wish I had my camera but my GF has it.

I don't have that problem really. It's kind of odd because my truck is outside 24 hours a day most days and I park next to trees and a bird house at school and home. I hardly ever have to clean bird crap up. My gripe is with the bugs that leave orange splatter when you hit them. A lot of those hit my truck during the summer. The windshield was a mess.
