Default Embarrassing but true

This absolutely is a true problem that I have and desperately need
I park my car off-street (no garage) as parking is very limited
in our area. SInce spring began, the local birds have been using my
side view mirrors as toilets.
Each day when I go to work, I find that about half of each door
beneath the mirror is absolutely caked in white bird poop (stands out
very much on my navy-blue car).
I mean it's absolutely caked on! As if two dozen birds had
moved their bowels in that same spot! The birds actually sit on the
mirror, and poop onto the cardoor. The rest of the car is untouched.
Today I actually caught one bird sitting on the side-mirror
taking a dump onto the car!
I know this is funny, but going to the car-wash before work
every morning (sometimes twice a day) is becoming expensive not to
mention time-consuming.
I've parked the car here for years and never had this problem
until this year. Any idea what is up and how to keep the birds away???

I had the exact same situation several years ago. What is happening is that
it's spring and males are fighting other males for the available females.
Sounds silly until I watched this little sparrow looking guy beat the sh!t
out of my side vewe mirrors as he attempted to drive off the bird in the
mirror. I laughed my arse off and then went and got an old pair of socks
and put them on the mirrors. Next day the neighbor had bird do-do all over
his truck!

Just get something to cover the mirrors while your parked in the area the
birds happen to be self-attacking and you'll be fine.
