        Is that how you get rid of birds??!

        My dog is being terrorized by 2-3 birds everday. As soon as he steps into my backyard, they start chirping really loud to each other and start swooping down by my dog's head repeatedly until he finally comes inside. They almost hit me the other day not realizing I was walking onto the grass. The other night I let him out and as he pee'd, I could see the look of terror on his face that they'd come. He's even started having accidents in the house even though we take him out regularly.. I think he's scared.

        Anyone have advice for "attack of the birds"?

        jenny and sandra, get a large, ugly, plastic or wooden Owl and put it in a high, prominent location where the birds can easily see it.

        the birds will stop coming by it because an owl is a predatory bird.

        we see this all over here in the pac. NW. lots of little birds that poop all over things, and you see fake owls up everywhere.

            Hi Ladies! I'm back from my wedding! I don't have any pictures yet, so I was a little scared to post!

            I do love the "shout box" thread. It's a great way to catch up!

                  You can also use rubber snakes. Although, I am terrified of snakes so this was not a good option for me!

                  You can get them at the hardware store or even a toy store.

                  We used to use them in the airplane hangar where I worked. Sometimes you'll also see them in the rafters at Sam's or Costco.
