Scaring away a bird?
May 22, 2006 12:21 PM Subscribe
In the past two weeks a bird (let's call him Stan) has developed a weird attachment to the rear view mirrors on our car. (The car is parked outside.) At all hours of the day Stan can be found sitting on the side of one of the mirrors pecking furiously. He seems to prefer one side mirror more than the other but doesn't really care too much. I'd really like to discourage little Stan from his behavior because he might scratch up the mirror and he's pooping all over the doors.

I have no desire to hurt this bird - I just want him to stop. I tried covering the mirrors with paper or foil but he just pecked on them until they fell off.
Stan's a small, generic-looking brown bird. There are a gazillion of them in our neighborhood but (I THINK) it's just one bird behaving this way.
