Me vs the robins

Part 2 of the robin saga.

So far the lion didn’t work.  Nor the fluorescent marker idea from some other websites.  Nor the picture of a cat.

Dirty birds!  They sit on the railing and attack their reflection through the screens.  Then they sit on the railings and poop then start all over again.

Waxed paper on the outside of the outside of the windows seems to work…until it rains.  Our front porch is covered so the waxed paper was still good but…

…not so much on the back window.

I went to our tiny town post office and decided to stop at one of the “dollar’ stores looking for mylar pinwheels to stick in some styrofoam in front of the big window in the back of our house.  No pinwheels but they did have a rubber snake and mylar balloons.

I scrubbed the back of the house and window sill before I placed my new friend there.  You can see the striped and patterned pillows in the window.  I was hoping they would be enough of a distraction to keep the birds from attacking the window.  Didn’t work.

Will this $2 trick work?  I hope so!
