    Re: pigeonssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

    hello

    chirp chirp chirp
    birds on the A/C
    pigeons.... ya.... lots and lots

    singing a morning tune..
    we wish u well..
    come to our world..
    there are less number of trees
    and few things to eat..
    no place to nest..

    what a wonderful place u have
    u can leave the leftovers from your meal
    just outside your window
    and we shall clean them up
    and maybe feed our young ones too..

    wish u a happy birthday..
    everyday is a new one right?

    a small bowl of water
    and a few scattered grains
    is sure to make us fly in glee
    please let us be
    we are sure to make u happy
    chirp chirp..lovely tune

    sathya

    Re: Pigeons

    Yes, isn't it amazing? Pigeons and other birds in a desert! Many fly by or sit on my window sills and it is kind of nice to have them around (but of course they can be a nuisance). I used to feed them earlier but since Gulf News warned about not feeding the birds ( re:bird flu) I have refrained.

    Even I faced the same problem when I was in Dubai, finally I screened my balcony to get rid of pigeon nuisance.

    I have heard to apply WD-40 in the balcony. Piegons do not like the smell and they will not stay there any more. Not from personal experiance, but other sources... Try and if it is effective, pass to everybody...

    Hi all,

    what is this WD -40. I'm also having bird problem. They also have a nest in out bathroom window and can see everything what is happening in the nest. After we shifted last year atleast 10 times they've hatched eggs and seen the small bird's development.

    Wd-40 is a lubricator. You can see it at any building materials shops...

    Dear freinds

    Be-ware of pigeons on the balcony, specially if you have a window AC.

    They usually carry some kind of tiny worms in their feathers, which can bite and result into the entire the household being infected....

    take care specially if you have kids,

    sorry i have no solution to the problem....

    Rgds
