    Angry D@mn birds!

    So every spring, I have birds try to build a nest behind the light fixture on the front porch. Usually after a week, they're done. This year I think there's a new group of birds. This is round 2 this year and it's been going on for 2 weeks. Every day I knock their crap down. It feels like they're getting quicker by the day. I'm ready to take the light fixture down.

    New birds for 2013.
    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.

    Might have to turn them into hollow birds, if you know what I mean

    Maybe put up some of those anti bird spikes like you see on storefront signs?

    We had a problem like this several years ago where pigeons were building nests in a valley on our roof. There was a danger water would back up behind their nest and seep into the attic. We had a professional bird prevention dude remove the nest and put up a bunch of anti-bird stuff on the roof, including caging off that valley on the roof and putting down this sticky goo the birds don't like on their feet. So, there are some other ideas.

    Also, BB guns are cheap and readily available.

    The other day I walked out while they were in process and they flew up into the tree and sat there taunting and tweeting away. Just about launched the broom in my hand into the tree My neighbors probably wouldn't appreciate me discharging firearms in their direction

    Not sure I have room for spikes but maybe I can do some custom work with wire coat hangers.

    If you aim right, you can cut off the neighbors' complaints before they begin!

    I had birds nest in my drier vent every year. It was a huge hassle trying to get the nest out of the vent while standing 20 feet in the air.

    You should have used a ladder - much easier than hovering.
