One unforeseen problem with white picket fence posts…

…they’re perfect landing pads for birds.

bird poop on new fence

The above picture is our new fence post cap, which I stained a lovely white. Unfortunately there is a bird dropping on it. Grrr! Dumb bird, don’t you know that poop goes in the potty (and not on the fence)?

There’s actually a kid’s song about it.

Every time I clean the poop away, I find another dropping (usually on a different post) the very next day. Just this week, there was a bird dropping on our kale seedling. They have good aim.
