There are birds in my yards. I had two ducks flying in to the pool every morning. I thought they were cute until I realized how dirty messy they are. So we bought a whirly thing to put out by the pool. It did the trick No more ducks. Then Sandy next door let me know they had moved to her pool. One morning she woke up and she had little baby ducks in her pool.
This year we had three baby owls. They were out front and visible form the front windows. Such cute fluffy babies. They grew up and roam the neighborhood now. Good news is that we do not have any mice in the neighborhood.
