adityapd, you've got plenty of if ideas by now.
Which one are you planning to implement?

Steeroidís one looks most full proof but expensive.

Use what the farmers have been using all along to scare the birds away. A scarecrow! Put it up in the tree to make it more effective.

We do this in our factory shed...
Attached few black and white coloured plastic bags to the branches of the tree... The birds mistake the noise and the movement made by the bag due to wind for some other animal .. So they dont pirch on that tree... It worked for us to shoo away the birds nesting in our shed..
Cheers

I opened this thread hoping to read all the wise cracks. And yes, I am not disappointed. I think a car cover should do it, but never mind, keep the wise cracks coming

Talking The MOST amazing inventions ever!

Ah! I chanced upon this post, and was surprised to see the absence of visionaries who would out their ideas on canvas- anyway, I am (with the help of Lord photoshop CS of course) !

The good ol' days when you would let your 'gun do the talking' may have to return sooner than expected with the number of crows on the rise!


Featured here is the Avia MaxRID 3.3 (Indian version) this mean gun fires at the rate of 3500 RPM (rounds per minute) and packs a wallop!. Automatic laser target detector, and multi- target sighting make this a must have in every car lovers munitions depot




Of course if you want to take out the nesting areas, you need even more fire power- and that is why, we have the EXTERMI AV947 car mounted artillery cannon, which has a cluster detector, and fires shells based on probability of clusters/groups of birds. It can also take out targets on craggy hill tops.


The next product is of course - a life like decal of some villain holding a Magnum or a Desert eagle. Now that most of the birds are used to seeing gun toting terrorists, they are very aware of the damage caused, and will stay clear!



One of the most non violent methods is of course- to tape an Origami bird to your bonnet/boot and have a " You could be next" over it in big letters.. to remind the bird of the fate that awaits it if it happens to fall into your origamistic hands. 16 folds later- it pretty much wont have anything to complain.




Getting you Cop girlfriend (or even an olympian shooter will do) to haul her torso out of the sun roof, and give the bird a shot up one of its ends is a good way to scare off any wannabe car dirtiers.





You could also win a Lottery (THe BIG BIG ones) and get clint Eastwood to do another 'Dirty Harry' for the birds sake. The "Be careful what you wish for PUNK!" line works wonders with the avians.





Parking your car underwater is a method people seldom take- Pity!- I wonder why!






An even more efficient way is to park your neighbours car OVER your's that way- You can get back at him for Bringing his dog over to your lawn for its morning Dose.





Last but not the least- A CARBURELLA - Why didn't anyone ever think of this?

Trying to think of more ideas still- man! I seem to have struck a rich vein of absurdity . God knows how long this one's going to last.

My suggestions:
1. Hire a Orinthologist and Bird Sniper.They can work as a team.If this is costly..hire a galli boy and arm him with some stones and catapult.
2. A falcon will not help as it will also ultimately drop something sometime..hence bring in a Sylvester Car kinda breed
3. Finally if it doesnt help...one night sneak out and chop off the tree.
4.
