Pigeon vs Cd

After some time now, I finally came to a conclusion and regarding aesthetics of my balcony garden, it's a pretty important one.

It seems that one of the methods I use in order to keep pigeons away from my balcony and my garden is/or became inefficient. By became
inefficient, I mean that possibly pigeons got used to it, because it's a commonly used pigeon prevention method in my city for some time now. I know some people that say it works, yet others say it doesn't. There also some people who say they are among the first ones that have practiced the method and they came to a conclusion that it was efficient for some time, but not any more! Well, I've been practicing three or at least two methods trying to get rid off pigeons, so I can't conclude for sure the efficiency of this one solely. What I can say is: there is possibility that this method never kept the pigeons away and there is a possibility that this particular method worked for a while, until they got used to it. Hmm, there's one more thing that might clarify this puzzle or at least try to. Before an hour ago or so, I was walking through my neighborhood gazing at stars as always and checking out some other urban balconies, and guess what do I see!? A window, three Cds tied together above the window and you guess, three pigeons having a good time!

At least, I can conclude that this method solely is inefficient, however I don't think I'll be taking the Cds off before I conclude the same through my own experiments. It might sound a little stupid, it does to me as well, but I don't want to gamble with my plants!

What a great blog! I wonder if the CD thing works because in addition to the reflections they tend to move around in the wind and cause the pigeons to loose balance. I'm thinking if the cd's are hanging it would work better. Then, who knows. In any case I've turned on my readers in my latest post to your blog.

Hey,
take a look at some of my older posts and you'll see that most of CDs are in fact hanging.
Thanks for commenting.
