Icon8 I'm going to kill me a bird!

At work this dang bird keeps sitting on my mirrors and crapping down the door.

I'm about this close to killing that ****...

Only problem is its a Cardinal, but I'm to the point where i could care less.


Anyone else have this problem? If so how did u fix it?

get one of the stuffed cats from Cracker Barrel that looks about as real as possible.....and sit it on your hood and see if that works....of course rub the stuffed cat up against another cat so it smells like a cat...

Well, you could always get one of these in your truck........

It'd keep more than birds away from your truck, just keep the windows rolled down with food and water (of course I'd never leave an animal in a car unattended). But can you say owned?

They're called pigeon spikes. May look a little funky, but if you rigged them up with some velcro it would probably work...

You can cover your side mirrors with a shower cap until the birdy goes away.

He probably just likes looking in the mirror at himself.

Do you have an alarm system with a panic button? If so id turn that on everytime I saw him on there.. Might work.

or just put a scarecrow in the back.

They make plastic hawks for this... we use them a lot in the grass fields to keep bird and geese away. just set one on your roof and they wont come within 50' of your truck

zach covering up your mirrors don't work. They finally just left my truck alone. Not sure where they went. Must have went back to your work. They would also try to break in my windows. I don't know what it is with our trucks and cardinals.

Paint ball gun is what I was going to use. I could shoot them off my truck with minor damage to truck and bird. (accually it might kill the bird)
