Uninvited Guests

Only one week off of work and I am already experiencing some uninvited guests...birds. Yes, much to my disliking, I have a nest under my backyard deck. This isn't the first time for these fine, feathered friends to take shelter at my residence, so I've installed action figures to prevent them from building their nests. I've tried Spiderman, Mr. Incredible and Superman, which all had success in past summers.
This year I used the ever, so popular Shrek guy. As you can see, they must have heard about his recent movie. He's actually part of their nest.
I guess Robins aren't afraid of ogres. Bummer!
At least, it's not those awful dive-bombing Barn Swallows, so the nest can stay.

This brought a smile to my face! The robin likes Shrek but not action heros. That or they've gotten use to them not moving?

Better birds than cows or horses roosting up there...

That is hysterical! I wish Andy had taken pictures of you taking pictures though. :)

Maybe you should put some Jacob and Edward action figures up!
