Red face Barn Birds are so annoying..

There are birds in the barn and they are so annoying. They poop every where. The inside of the barn could use a good hose down.

I found a dead bird inside my horse's water bucket. So i had to scoop that bird out. I think i am going to get bucket covers to keep them bird free. Then i had to clean the poop out of my horse's stall. Theres a bird's nest over the stall.

Today a bird fell out of the nest and was tryn to fly away..but it couldn't. So i took a towel and picked up the bird and put it in a safe spot. Hopefully mom bird will find the young bird.

Does anybody else have this problem?

i know what you mean. i keep finding dead baby birds as i'm cleaning out the horses' stalls and i also found one in a water bucket a few weeks ago. they dive bomb my head as i'm cleaning. i find straw in my hair all the time from their nests. UGGGG.

I see people who put up fake owls and cats eye reflector things like this...
Scare Birds Away with Holographic / Iridescent Guardian Owl and Repel Strips

You can usually buy them from garden centres, hardware stores etc

I strongly disagree with y'all. there are no better fly trap than a barn swallow, they are also hard on grasshoppers and mosquitoes.
