Re: What are you doing to deter birds

osprey seem to not like tarps....so i have some ...the seagulls that land on boat get killed and so do the cute lil skeeter eating sparrows/swallows wtf they are....bubba deaded 2 in 4 days..oops.....he cannot kill a booby-- they land on the pointiest end of sprit...they also attack my guests in cockpit of my boat--landing on shoulders and pecking at ears...surprising what those crazy boobies will do...and frigates seem to dislike tarps on boats--isnt a constant ground below--it flutters in breezes..works well, as it flutters differently each flutter...
pelicans dont land on my boat--one tried, and both bubba and i shooed it away.
these mexipelicans seem to not mind folks-=-they will land on the boats of cruisers living on board and derelict alike....and pangas not used in one day have pelicans all over them---
