I wonder for some days already what birds keep 'marking' my car and why.
(and i keep waiting for money of course :rolleyes: )
Then i talked with my neighbour who can see my car from his window -
and he told me that titmouses carry on a real fight with my car's mirror - several times a day!
Making loud voices, hammering the mirror and leaving those white marks - sometimes really huuuuge amount!

(Sorry that my car is so muddy - no use to wash it - i drive muddy roads every day.)

Yarko, be happy, that you don’t have a black car, otherwise … please look at this picture in the newspaper:

Storch steht auf schwarze Autos

There is written that this stork for a whole day enjoyed himself sitting at a companies parking lot on the black cars of the employees and wouldn’t let anybody drive him away … :headroll:
