stupid birds

Anyone know a solution for stupid birds attacking rv windows when they see their reflection? I have one that sits on my spare tire (poop everywhere) and then dive bombs itself. I am worried it is going to damage the rear window. I may tape a garbage bag on the window. Too many houses around to shoot the darn thing.

Black powder in an aluminum tin... wire up a spark plug and put it in the powder, cover it all with a layer of bird seed, as the bird starts to eat the seeds, apply electricity to the sparkplug.... done

and quit using windex on those windows LOL

A simpler, quieter and a little less messy way would be to lay a rubber snake on top of your spare tire.

I'm having a flashback to my childhood.......
I seem to remember watching the Coyote try that once.
I don't think it ended well.

Go to a farm or outdoor store and get a rubber or plastic owl or hawk. Put it somewhere nearby. The lesser birds will vamoose.

The Orioles are doing this to my parents car. I hung up aluminum pie pans and it stops them when the wind is blowing.

What kind of suicidal bird are you dealing with?
