    why would you want to? your going to have to kill the animals, chop trees down or both..either way, it's not pleasant thoughts. you can't kill a mockingbird...

      You are right!!  What I should do is try to take pictures of the birds and make the situation pleasant.

    You would have to start with no trees on the property and have a couple of cats.  but I'm curious why you wouldn't want birds nesting on your land.

      Because they are in a bush close to my door and my neighbor told me they may attack me if I get to close to their nest.  Birds build a nest in my bushes every year.

    A rubber snake will most likely prevent a bird from nesting nearby.  My mother-in-law has kept one hanging above a light fixture under a car port for a year and it's worked.

    You Don't because it is inate ! They are a nuisance,bird droppings on your car,on your washing,on your steps,on your dogs water/food dishes..otherwise I love them and welcome them back each year and then the sadness when opening the basement doors I find the little, teeny, lifeless bodies of baby birds either pushed or fallen from their mothers nest...........

    Why would you want to?

    We have a hanging plant where a sparrow has built a nest and has five eggs waiting to hatch. Let nature take its course.
