Car Color Preferences of Birds, or Is your car a Poop Target”


Sometimes, I just have to share something that strikes me as being insanely useless information.

By insane, I mean when I see that someone has taken the time to seriously research a thing, spending time and resources just to get to a resolution, I have to wonder what was in their mind.

I was reading an article on HubPage that I will provide a link to below, where a group in the UK decided to do a study on, what were the favorite colors of cars for birds to POOP on?

OK, Me? well, my mind does go in some strange directions sometimes, and I do think about some strange things that I witness in the world. But …… Bird Poop Toilets (aka cars)? This one never entered my mind.

If you don’t want to read the article, I understand, so let me give you a summary here.

1- The study was done by an auto group in the UK.

2- They eliminated location (such as being under a bird roost, power line, etc.) from their study.

3- There were 1140 cars selected, in several cities in the UK.

The study showed that;

A- Red was the favorite color selected by birds to Poop on, in fact the number was that 18% of the birds selected Red cars.

B- Blue was the second most preferred color by birds with 14% of the birds pooping on tcars that are blue.

C- Black was the third most preferred color by birds, with a hefty 11% of birds preferring thisc olor for their dumping.

D- White was the next favorite outdoor toilet for birds with a distant 7% preferring this color.

E- Gray or Silver was the next most favored color for birds to Poop onto, with the rest of the color spectrum sharing a sprinkling of bird Poop.

And the least favored color by birds to poop on was ……. GREEN.

Anyway, I felt it was my responsibility as a caring citizen to share this information with you.

Here is the link, if you want to read more on this truly useless subject.
