Lots of people around Lake Massawippi put out various devices to discourage the seagulls from using their docks and rafts as personal toileting facilities. One of these devices is a plastic owl. While the seagulls tend to be wary of these plastic birds, this kingfisher had no problem at all using the perch to improve its view of the waterfront! "Owls right if I can sees the fish" he must have thought!
The only things that kept gulls off our sailboats on moorings were fline line (filament) strung on the rigging or lots of flapping pieces of cloth...and they didn't always work. It's hard to get white gelcoat clean after the fulls have visited!
