Birds be gone

Women, don't despair – I don't intend to forsake you. No, it's the birds of the feathered kind that had outstayed their welcome quite a while ago; and now, it's finally Goodbye.

Of all the beautiful birds that call Australia home, our building had to be seized by the common pigeon, with all the, well, crappy consequences that come with these vermins.

Well, as of today, these more than unwelcome guests will have to find a new home. Early afternoon, a tradie showed up out of the blue, announcing that he was sent by strata management "to fix the bird problem".

And fixed it he has. Within less than half an hour, all of Columbo's window sills were made pigeon proof; and in the course of the afternoon, all other sills and ledges of the building received the same upgrade.

So, ladies, don't take it the wrong way when I say I'm looking forward to my first bird-free night.
