If you're driving around in a red car, get a car wash company on retainer.
In addition to blogging about small bird feeders or wild bird seed, I try to keep my loyal readers abreast of useful and breaking bird-related news. It's just another friendly service I offer.
Thus, when my friend, Dave Murray, brought this to my attention, I knew I had to bring it to yours.
It turns out that some guys related to Halford's Autocentres in England did a 'study' to determine which color of car attracts the most bird poop. According to their research, based on "1,140 cars in Brighton, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and Bristol," red cars received the most unwanted attention, or about 18% of the droppings. Next worst, "blue 14%, black 11%, white 7%, grey/silver 3%, green 1%".
So if you're looking for a car that is least likely to become covered in bird poop, buy a green one.
Or, just pay attention to where you're parking.
