Angry Birds Experiment
It’s been a while since I’ve had a real post here. Let’s just say I’ve been…distracted. I’d love to say it’s going to get better, but that may take a while.
I did want to go ahead and document the issue I’ve been having with some angry birds. Not the iPad variety, the poop-on-my-truck variety. I don’t know why my truck offends them so. A little research suggests it’s their own reflection(s) in the glass. Regardless of the cause, they’re been attacking my ride like well-fibered fiends. It must stop.
After a fair bit of research and some genuine Southern advice, I have spent a grand total of three dollars on toy snakes to drape over the hood, roof, and the wall I ark beside. The idea is that bluebirds are afraid of snakes and will thus leave my truck alone. It’s night 1 of this experiment; I will report on the success/failure of this venture in later posts.
If the snake gambit fails, there are plans to try a fake owl and/or shiny eyeball balloons to deter the featered pests. If all else fails, I’ll borrow a cat.
