    Messy birds

    It seen that the birds are envy about my pool. They drink the water from the spa and leave me a pile of poop almost every time. Anybody had any luck with a simple trick to keep the birds away?

    I haven't tried it but would a hawk or owl decoy help. Maybe one mounted so it has some movement ??

    From the graph in this study it looks like an owl does pretty good.

    We have had luck with ours they stay out of our spa. They moved to my covered patio so we had to get some there as well. But get the kind where the heads move
