Might want to check the date of the last post on this thread... It's nearly 7 years old.

Guess not, but birds haven't changed much in 7 years

Lasers are used around airports to chase away things like geese, i think they're still doing that around amsterdam airport once in a while use green lasers.

City pigeons don't seem to give a rats ass for any color though. These birds are pests where i live, and many measures are taken to limit the damage they do - including installing spikes on top of outdoor displays at bus stops and such to prevent them shitting all over them.

They also sit on my balcony railing once in a while, but scaring them off with lasers has had limited to no effect. The color doesn't seem to matter either, i've tried green, red, blue, 405nm, nothing seems to really deter them.

I suppose using high power would make them fly off, but that would be high power in the sense of actually burning them to the move because it causes pain. Hitting them in the face with something powerful enough to damage human vision doesnt even seem to bother them.

And i'm not saying one should maim birds with lasers, but these pigeons are a true pest around here, and comfortable with humans to the point where they'll literally grab a sandwich from your hands if you eat one walking down the street.

Other birds do react to low powered lasers though. We get sparrows migrating in huge flocks around here a couple of times a year, and you can get the whole flock to move by just hitting one bird on the side.

Birds like magpies and crows seem interested in the dot, not affraid of it, perhaps a bit like cats behave. I usually don't bother them though, they're not problematic here at all and might even be useful predating on those bloody pigeons

Are you aware the last post to this thread was 7 years ago?

Why are you necroposting on this thread --dead now for 7 years already?

Necroposting is very frowned upon here unless you are adding some important information--something new.
