I just saw something like that for the first time recently. However, it seemed to be working.

So funny! Perhaps they should put up a row of birdhouses where they wouldn't be a problem, yet the birds and customers would be impressed. Of course, they could have similar bird houses for sale inside.

They are agile and flexible. It probably helps keep them from falling off the sign.

Thanks for a good laugh this morning! Never underestimate the determination of a bird!
Beatrice you can add raisins, currants or any chopped dried fruit to the soda bread.

I think they just made it much safer to have a nest amongst those spikes :-) :-) :-)

Have a great day!

The deterrent looks like it is helping to keep the nest secure.

Ha, ha, that's what they get.
Birds- 1, HOme Depot- Zero!
Good old birds!

I had not yet seen this done! Funny! Many times, there will be birds in the garden section at Home Depot eating from a huge bag of bird seed!

I did put a short post on my blog tonight if you get a chance to visit.

Enjoy the weekend.

I've never seen that deterrent before. Doesn't seem to be working very well. Smart birds!

Thanka Everyone for the comments. Glad this post gave many of you a smile for today. This was another time when having a small digital in my pocket was very handy!

Daniel LaFrance said...

Great find and topic!

Lois's suggestion is really great and would be akin to putting a positive on what was thought to be a negative. So... Beatrice, will you accept the challenge and contact your thorny Home Depot? :)


I appreciate your comments and visit to my blog earlier today.

Cute! There's something about the box stores--here the Ravens like to roost there rather than taking the long trek back to the woods every night--much handier to their favorite food sources.

Too funny. Birds seem to love Home Depot, and Lowe's don't they?

Daisy said...

HA! How funny! What better spot to build a nest than in the nursery after all. Have a nice Sunday, Beatrice! :)

To me it looks like a "come on" for the birds. The close up pix is amazing.
