For the last few days we've noticed about 5 robins hanging out on our patio furniture... and of course, they've been doing their business on my chairs (thank God the cushions aren't on them), all over the deck, on the table.
We've never had a lot of birds in the yard... the odd one on the fence or whatever. The last few days they are always here... on the patio furniture, on the swing across the yard (and pooping on the cushions there), on the fence, on the shed.
Nothing is different about our yard in the last few days.
Part of the problem is that we can't scare them off as we're not often seeing them out there... I've only seen them hanging out once... otherwise all I find are the gifts they're leaving behind...
#1. What is drawing them to my yard?
#2 How do I get rid of them.
I'm sorry to anyone who loves birds, but birds truly give me the heebee-jeebees and I want them GONE!!
