Depends on the type of bird and their diet too. Geez, we got nailed one year by a flock of little birds that had been eating berries. It was terrible.
We kept previous boats on a mooring ball for several years and I tried all sorts of things to persuade the birds to go somewhere else. Plastic owls, fishing line strung over the boom, I even set a bunch of mouse traps and tied them down several places on deck but just ended up with rust stains from the mouse traps. I finally won the battle by shrouding the boat in mono-filament gillnet when we left the boat unattended. What a pain. Our kids are using our old mooring now for their boat and have resumed the battle.
