Ever been drive bombed by a Paris pigeon while walking out a Metro station ... ?!

They are "rats with wings" ... and it was a bullseye hit on top of my head, in case I didn't mention that.
I got nailed by a pigeon coming out of the grocery store, and since I had both hands full of multiple bags of groceries, and a shaved head, I had the joy of feeling it run down the side of my face while getting to my car. At least it didn't run into my eye. I swear that little bastard was aiming for me.

I once found bird poop on my car seat in the morning. The window was open a half inch. Did he stick his tiny little butt through a half inch and then projectile poop onto the middle of my seat? Wat wid dat?

Bird droppings?


Hey, out here in the Great Pacific Northwet there are plenty of seagulls, other shore birds, peregrine falcons, osprey, several species of hawks, numerous owls, robins, sparrows, finches, crows, ravens, jays, woodpeckers, starlings (yuck!), and the majestic bald eagle.


They all leave droppings.


The owls not so much, as there regurgitate more than they poop.


The starlings gather in enormous flocks, hang out on signs over the interstate and turn the pavement purple with their berry filled excreta.


And the bald eagles drop loads that would fill a large skillet.


Yeah, we got bird droppings.

Thought this might go along with y'all's discussion: A pirate walks into bar and sits down. The bartender notices that he has a peg leg, a hook for a hand, and a patch over one eye. The pirate orders a beer, and while he's pouring it the bartender asks "So what's the story with the leg?"
"Well it were many a year ago," says the pirate. "I were walkin on the deck a me ship and a rogue wave swept me overboard, and a shark swum up and bit me leg clean off! I swum ashore and were fitted fer a peg leg that very night."
"That's terrible," says the bartender. "What about the hand?"
"Well it were the very next day," says the pirate. "I were walkin on the deck a me ship and a rogue wave swept me overboard again, and a whale came up and bit me hand clean off! I swum ashore and were fitted fer a hook that very night."
"Wow," says the bartender. "So what about the eye?"
"Well it were the very next day," says the pirate. "I were walkin on the deck a me ship, and I were lookin out fer rogue waves, and a seagull flew over and pooped right in me eye!"
"Oh man," says the bartender. "And that blinded you?"
"Well no," says the pirate. "But it were me first day with the hook." Lol, had to edit, they did not use word poop!

No picture...but I have been peed on by squirrels enough times that I no longer walk in the Woods of Otis without protective gear.

Maybe I could draw you a picture.......you do know I am famous for my outstanding drawings?

When I was a mere child, I could get out on a flat roof where lots of pigeons gathered. The sidewalk below was full of droppings. I would wait until someone was walking below, & nail them on top of the head with my watergun. It was funny to watch them start to reach up on top of their head, then stop; thinking it was poop! It was great entertainment..........until my mom caught me!
