We have a pair who occasionally fly in. It's great to see them. They don't stay long and they never poo. Maybe our pair is more civilized than your pair. We have bird dropping around, too, everywhere. I don't know how to stop that either. Life goes on.

I've had them. Very cute but their poo is huge. I have to point them out to my two dogs but that gets them out.

So don't worry about it. They can't make too much mess, and one day they'll be gone.

Yeah. I don't mind sharing the swimming pool with them. The problem is they poo a lot ...

We have a couple visiting our pool from time to time, too. We even had 4 Canadian geese for three or four days in a row, a couple of years ago. They made such a racket, but it was a blast to watch them frolic.

I have a theory that birds laugh at those $30 plastic owls. Then they land on them and **** on their heads.

My neighbor has a koi pond, well, it's just a pond now. Right after he stalked it with thousands of dollars of fish an eagle came and had lunch. He watched one at a time as the large bird had a thousand dollar dinner. lol
