Heh...

Yeah... funny question isn't it... Anyways, there'* got to be something up with my car that is causing all of the birds in the air to take a detour and take a dump on my car. I've counted that on average, there are about 4 droppings per day extra on my car on a daily basis... yet I can look around and no one else'* car has been touched...

Needless to say, I'm just incredibly curious.

Awww, it'* been moved, hehe. It'* a Silver 89' Bonneville. I'd cover it up, but you see, in the neighborhood I have... the bad people in it would probably think it'* a car worth while... plus just the added pain in the *** of uncovering it and such just doesn't appeal to me.

I'm guessing birds have certain flight path'* near their nests. Last year my family couldn't park in the driveway or on the side of the road in front of the house with clean cars because in less than 1/2 hour there'd be a 12" wide strip from front to back with about 10-15 droppings. And if you parked there all day -we're talking 40+. I tried to park in the gravel next to the driveway or out behind the house, but for the first week I seemed to forget and just park where ever there was an open parking spot.
Didn't matter what color car -it was where you parked that made the most difference.

These birds, every year, dive-bomb my driveway. Literally. You'd see one flying towards the driveway, come down, fly low, *splat*, and fly up and off.

I'm sure they were responsible for the mirror incident I posted above.
