Default Bird poop on birdcage

I realize that this is not a pretty subject, but does anyone have a suggestion for how to remove bird poop from the top of a birdcage? It looks like our birdcage took a direct hit today, from a flock of large birds. Thanks!

Get your golf umbrella and the hose and spray UP. OR wait for a good rain.

Or....call Warranty. Might be a slow day.

Default If only we had the sound of music.

Bird poop on birdcage
and screaming red golf carts
Seat saves and road rage
and squares full of fine art
Dozens of golf courses blooming in Spring.

These are a few of our favorite things............


Feel free...add a stanza.

It is all because selfish bird owners don't bother picking up after their birds... <wink>

I keep a flex-hose with a wand attached in the cage . The wand makes it handy to spray the droppings away Had a heron do a number the other day and it washed right off.

That is the best idea. But, don't wait too long to do the clean-up. Fresher is faster........
