Does anyone have any suggestions for how to silence our mornings?
You need Mac out there, he's able to scare all crows away from my yard on command!

Have you thought about getting a fake owl and putting it in an obvious spot ?

Well since you're in the Seattle area, I'm afraid what I would suggest wouldn't go over too well😁

I placed a fake owl in our garden to keep the rabbits out. Couldn't tell it helped any. When I first found I had a bat problem in my barn I placed the owl on a pole near where the bats were entering. The bats response was pooping on it! Feeling sorry for the owl, the other day while waxing the Discovery I also washed and waxed the ooo. WHO? I meant to say the Owl!

Yes?

Maybe our comfort zone is like a donut that surrounds the hole that is the comfort zone of the 98%?

Are crows afraid of owls?

We are parked next to the garage and a storage shed that is conveniently placed so that Sena can jump out the RV window to the top of the shed and then to the garage roof. She delights in chasing the crows off the roof, but not before breakfast.

But it might be Sena who is creating the problem. She has started taking food onto the garage roof. She uses the gutter as a
cup holder for her water bottle. Anyone know where I can get an animated monkey decoy?

But my comfort zone is the 2% zone! I would simply shrivel up and die if I had to be like the 98%...Although I do admit to procrastinating....generally if I'm overwhelmed or overstimulated.
