Re: [WISPA] Ridiculously OT, but relevant question...

2009-03-19 Thread David Hulsebus
We put a full size plastic owl on a 50 ft tower just above the antenna 
that had many mockingbirds perching on a yagi, and the went away. Not 
sure about woodpeckers. Are they perching or pecking?

Thanks, Dave Hulsebus

Re: [WISPA] Ridiculously OT, but relevant question...

2009-03-18 Thread Rick Kunze
Ag or farm suppliers also carry rolls of mylar ribbon, very cheap.  It's 
silver reflective on one side and usually red on the other.  Like the CD 
idea recently posted, it flops in the wind and reflects sunlight.  It's 
so effective that the reflections can be seen from quite a distance (1/2 
mile) and makes the area look very busy.  It's used quite a bit out 
this way by rice farmers to keep the birds under control.  I hate 
Starlings, they make a mess under my tower during the fall.  I've got 
every plant known to mankind sprouting from the joints in my concrete 
parking lot.  I use the ribbon sometimes myself.

Doing fine thanks, since I dumped my office help.  It's amazing how 
little there is to do when you take the bull by the horns.  All I need 
now is a matching cape!

I've been lurking here for quite a while actually, but just haven't 
chimed in much I guess.  When the other Canopy list went $$, I came to 
the wispa canopy list and am fairly active there.  But I guess I just 
don't spend as much time listing as I use to.  Maybe I just know 
everything now?  choke  At the very least, I've learned what NOT to do.

But since this is where the majority of the old gang now resides, I 
threw in the towel on the other lists, albeit reluctantly.  There was 
some loyalty there I suppose.  Now I'm recovering.  I guess you could 
say I'm seeking therapy here!  ;)
