And I don't mean bird bombs, I mean the actual birds themselves!
I believe I do all the right things to keep my black paint looking its best all the time. The car gets detailed every week, clayed, polished, waxed regularly etc etc. The car is always garaged at home and always parked in an undercover security carpark near my work. This is where the problem is.
I pay good money (and walk for 10 minutes every day to/from work) for the privilege of parking under cover. The carpark however has open sides, allowing birds to be able to fly in. For some reason lately, this one bird has taken a liking to my car and is landing on it, walking on it, pooping on it and scratching the clear coat with its claws. When I get back to my car every evening, I find it messed up and to make it worse, the bird sitting there on the ledge making noise as if it was laughing at me!!
Have any of you guys had this problem or can you offer any suggestions which would keep this bird off my car? I have heard that some birds like to see their own reflection, which may explain why it's attracted to my car?
I am open to any suggestions, even ones which may involve "harming" the bird a little
Thanks in advance.
PS: I've thought of a car cover but don't like using one on a dusty car i.e. unless the car and car cover are completely clean. I've also tried placing rat poison on the ledge where the birds land but this hasn't worked to date...
