    An obvious question but it needs to be asked....do you have bird feeders in your yard? When I rented I had four or five feeders in our urban environment. We moved to a more suburban location three years ago and I put the feeders out in the spring. By the start of summer I decided to take them down because the birds were using the pool rails as resting and pooping spots. Took a couple of weeks but they no longer congregate so close and taking down the feeders solved the problem.

    Sorry, I have found our neighbors know of this problem and don't bother opening their pool until Memorial Day as this is usually the time the Grackels have "flown the coop" so to speak! As soon as the weekend came, no more problems. Thanks all!
