I-play has released Pigeon Squadron, its latest iPhone game.

You take on the role of a pigeon, unloading last night’s dinner onto unsuspecting people, animals and cars below. Nothing is safe from a good dousing of the white luck, as we shall call it.

Joining an elite team of paramilitary pigeons means progress is made via challenges and missions. Be it a group of pesky ducks that need to be brought down a peg or two, or a nasty man, one of the four playable pigeons will have to work their magic to move onto the next level.

Pigeon waste ruins historical plaque

Pigeons, Post Riders and Neglected Local History

Submitted by NewRochelle101 on Tue, 07/06/2010 – 22:18.

On the holiday weekend there was a fun and free New Rochelle trolley tour about local history. During the tour, tour guide and Habitat for Humanity director Jim Killoran mentioned the Post Rider plaque installed in downtown New Rochelle outside of the HSBC Bank.

The Post Riders delivered messages from the armies in the Revolutionary War. The NY Post ran an article about the Post Road and the Riders on July 4th, linked here: The Road that Paved the Way to Revolution I went to look at the plaque and it was covered in pigeon waste, really awful, almost impossible to read.”

Pigeon droppings are not only unsightly, left unattended they can corrode building materials such as steel and stone, can stain surfaces, and discolor paint.  Installing bird deterrents is a simple way to keep surfaces free of bird feces. A few bird spikes on the top of this sign would surely take care of the problem! They are easy to install and require no maintenance, and easy humane way for New Rochelle to preserve a part of local history.

Bird Proofing Commercial Buildings

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

Birds-PoopUnlike homes and boats, commercial buildings suffer damage from pest birds on a grand scale. Commercial  building owners spend millions of dollars every year to deal with problems associated with pest birds. The only viable solution is bird proofing.

Failure to bird proof a commercial building can lead to all sorts of problems. The droppings pest birds leave seriously detract from a building’s appearance. The acid secretion produced by the fungi that live in bird droppings can mar paint and other surfaces. Cleaning and restoring buildings damaged by pest birds can be very expensive. Nests and droppings can, over time, clog gutters and down pipes, causing rooftops to leak or fill with water and possibly collapse. Pest bird nests and droppings can get sucked into ducts, grilles and vents, clogging commercial air conditioning and heating units, permanently damaging these expensive systems.

Bird droppings deposited at commercial building entrances and fire escapes increase the likelihood that pedestrians may slip and fall on them, creating a huge legal liability to commercial property owners. Droppings also spoil finished products in loading bays and storage areas. They ruin the appearance of costly finished goods, metal panels, and stonework. Droppings can also eat into and destroy wood, paper and cardboard packaging of products on pallets or outside storage.
