Same Song, Different Verse

Yesterday the Mocking bird snuck into the garage while Mac was on his treadmill and did his dirty work before Mac could shoo him out.  Garage door closed, windows flown into numerous times---didn't Einstein say that doing the same thing over and over while hoping for a different result is a sign of insanity?  If so, then our bird is crazy.
Mac tried keeping him away from the windows by putting moth balls around them.  The bird didn't care.  He put birdseed out for him, but the bird didn't care, Mockingbirds are bug eaters.
So the windows are closed, the blinds are down, the door is closed and except for a bird with what should be a sore head, all should be well.
NO!  Tired of attacking the windows he moved on to the garage door and splattered it as well, as I said before, he is a pooh head.

  1. He is obviously in love with Mac's car:) Our neighbor had a Robin that did the same thing to her car:)

  3. Have you tried putting up a fake owl or hawk decoy? We bought one from Amazon and hung it in our fig tree this summer as the crows were eating all the figs. We've never had a problem since. Maybe it will scare off the mocking bird. Take care, Pat xx

  7. Sounds like he doesn't even know how to exit the gene pool.

  8. I think this is going to be drama series rather than an one off show.

  9. I find this particularly amusing. Sorry. That bird is definitely after something. Maybe she/he is trying to impress Mac. My daughter's pound pup used to flirt with young dark-skinned guys and would run circles around them in the backyard and then run up and pooped next to them as a sign of her infatuation.

  10. Yes, I fear he is "a pooh head."

    I do hope this situation resolves itself soon for you.

    All the best Jan
