The misfuelling prevention device

Pigeons pooh polished paintwork – preferably red

Two days of research across 5 cities in the UK found that 18% of the 1,140 parked cars bombed by bird droppings were red, while green cars were targeted the least. The spectrum was red, blue, black, white, grey and silver, and finally green in order of avian attraction. Motorists were moved to proffer theories including that birds strafed highly polished paintwork as they saw their reflections, red was a danger signal and birds went for cars painted like their plumage, so seagulls dropped on white cars while pigeons plumped for grey or silver. Seagull guano is less damaging than pigeons’ poop which is grainy because of the seed content in their diet and so worse for car paint. Visit for more.
