Nasty fishing eating bird poop. Seagulls are the worst.

My daughter can't stand seagulls. She has been a target multiple times. Once, when she was 10 or so, she was in her Aunt's convertible and got pooped on. Another time, at around 13, she got hit at the beach. And yet another while pitching a softball game at age 15. Funny thing, she ended up going to college where the mascot was a seagull.

I live near a state park with a big lake. Geese nest there year round. When I visited one day, they were all away, visiting another part of the family on the other side of the lake, I guess. Well, I didn't realize that all the fecal matter came from geese. It looks just like small canine poop.

Now wet and sloppy bird poop is one thing, it can rinse off easily. But if you get hit by poop from geese in flight, well I think that considering the momentum it gains as it falls, it could seriously cause bruising and ouchees. Could be even worse if you look up to see from whence it came!

As for seagulls, I had one almost take my finger off as he dove for (and grabbed) my ham and cheese on a hard roll. Bastiches!

Geese, seagulls, pigeons, crows or ravens, all are expert bombadiers. Consummate in air to ground attack, from formation even. At least geese are. The rest are better in single attack mode. pelicans are the B 52s of the bird world. Carrying heavy loads that almost assured of hitting the target from shear size of the drop. lol

I was there that night in Tomorrowland but I remember seeing geese diving down for food the previous afternoon at the Tomorrowland Terrace. We even told a surveyist about it on our way out for the afternoon and she knew that can be an issue. The next night (the night of the incident,) I got back to the hotel and heard about the "hazmat situation" on the news. I feel bad but sadly there isn't much to be done. The birds will find away to go to areas of water and food. And theme parks have both. I think Fabio broke his nose on a roller coaster with a bird flying into his train. Disney World's equivalent to Disneyland Park (Magic Kingdom Park) has a well known dive-bomb problem. My mother got bombed at Universal (Studios) Orlando by Twister (now the Jimmy Fallon ride) back in the year 2000. I think Disney World and Universal have pigeons though.
