A biology textbook might tell you that beavers are nature’s dam builders, but the pigeons at my place merit at least a footnote in that chapter.
Behold the Disgusting Roof Dam of Pigeon Filth!
I’ve been having trouble with water leaking through my porch roof lately. Though I don’t think the problem is caused by pigeon poop, it certainly can’t help matters to have a pool of standing water created by the damn pigeons pigeon’s dam on my roof above the porch.
Obviously the spikes I installed nearby haven’t stopped these “stool pigeons” from roosting, so I will have to take additional measures this Spring to make this spot less appealing to the birds. To address my immediate water problem, I climbed out onto the treacherous wet roof with a rubber push broom and swept away the dam away as best I could. Some of that mess is unavoidably going to end up in my gutters– what a nasty cleaning chore that will be.
I really, really, really, really hate those pigeons.
