Hi Carol,

Couldn't find anything on the homepage but did a search.  Is this the one you were referring to?

one in a million blue tit
Cheers, Jack

I’m envious of the man with the blue tit. The best I’ve managed in my garden was a baby robin this summer. It wouldn’t fly to my hand but it would take food from me if I laid my hand on a flat surface that it could land on. Unfortunately, robins being robins, once the first two chicks had become independent they were chased away so that the parents could start their second brood. At least I prefer to think that was what happened to them rather than that they were caught by a cat.

I think my neighbour might be annoyed by all the bird activity in the garden - a very nice carved owl has suddenly appeared, perched on the end of her garage, the closest she can get it to my garden. Thankfully the birds are simply ignoring it.

Another possible outcome might be that some birds could be attracted to the carved owl.

Yes, owls are also birds.

Your neighbor may not necessarily be annoyed by the bird activity in your garden. Our next door neighbors love birds, feed them and provide nesting places for them. They often tell us about interesting bird happenings in their yard. And yet, they, too, have a fake owl perched in their tree at the end of the driveway. The reason is quite simple: They want to minimize the amount of bird excrement on their car when they park it under the tree (which they and we often do in the summer).

I think bird droppings might well be one of the problems. My neighbour is very fond of her immaculately kept garden, in which a weed dare not grow, so bird droppings would be anathema to her. In any case, the last I saw of her owl it was on its side on the garage roof, presumably having been blown over by the wind (not guilty m'lud) and it's now disappeared.
