Imgur user atomicrabbit2 discovered this to his cost, after moving into a lovely new house with a cozy gas heater. The exhaust was nicely tucked away in a corner, presenting an ideal place for birds to settle in and make themselves at home. And so the bird war began…
The problem was, the little nook appeared to be a perfect place for birds to nest because of the protection of the roof and heat from the fireplace".
"They were just trying to keep warm, I figured. They startled easily and flew away whenever I would walk in/out of my back door, which scared the shit outta me. At first I ignored it, but they started shitting and building a nest INSIDE the exhaust."
It not only didn't keep them away, but the spikes seemed to stabilize their nest. This time they brought coloured twine! I cleaned out the nest, next day they came back with more blue twine. Cleaned it out, and THEY CAME BACK AGAIN WITH MORE GODDAMNED TWINE… They must have had a stock pile somewhere."
So apparently, I left a small opening on the right side. Those birds were flying up into their now high-end GATED F*CKING COMMUNITY!"
They gave me a run for my money and it's not pretty, but after 4 years, lots of bird shit and 6 iterations, I think this will be the final one. If I see them back next year, I may just give in and try to charge them rent."
