I've also seen those owls covered in guano... I think the birds figure it out eventually.

To discourage spreader perching a thin line or stainless wire strung about 2-3 inches above the spreader between mast and shroud is usually enough to make it difficult for most birds to land there.

"Spike boards" of one type or another can be applied to radomes and mastheads (though tough there with all the other things already up there) can do the same... kind of unsightly, though...

In this regard, I HATE blackberry season.....
