I guess the bird's safe as long as she travels at less than ultrasonic speeds?

This pigeon made a wise investment in our "Nest Security System". This system protects its family, nest, and belongings from the pecker headed criminal elements.

Ahh the mourning dove.

Undeterred by the screeching box and more resolved than ever to mourn the loss of feathered friends in what used to be a sanctuary.

I was going to say "stupid bird" but after going the Bird-X website and seeing this thing cost almost $600.00, I now going to say "stupid homeowner".

My $75.00 Crossman BB gun is a much more effective bird repeller .

Well, look who it is Standing in the Doorway.

Don't Ask Me about that Space Age Love Song, I Ran So Far Away to get away from those Messages.

But I guess that Modern Love is Automatic, so you're just going to continue with the Telecommunication.

You Can Run all the way to Tokyo, but you'll never escape the Man Made aspects in your D.N.A.

(*pants heavily* and that...uses the ent-*cough* entire discography from...*wheeze* from their first UK LP re-*hack* release. It was an effort to get all that in there and still sound like it made sense)
