Thankfully there's none of that here at my house, but it looks like bird crap to me!

Furthermore, I advise scrubbing it off the siding.

Kids who were assaulted by armed robbers at the bus stops, women stabbing boyfriends, people being shot in the street, corrupt cops, gang violence, drugs, guns etc and all you can find to write a report on is bird sh!t???????

It's bird droppings, the birds are eating berries and then dropping these splatters. A few of us watched this one day at work while on a smoke break!!! The birds (about 300 of them) were in the bushes eating the berries then they all flew over and it was raining droppings!! Thank goodness we were under a topping from the building!!

It may be starlings, but has anyone noticed the increrase of Canadian Geese in the Plainfield area? With all the retention ponds in the area, it no wonder there aren't more geese. One solution is for the DNR to declare a controlled harvest on Canadian Geese and then donate the meat to the food bank That way, hunters get a chance to solve a problem and the needy get fed.

Have seen this at our place in southern Johnson Co. a few years ago. Several residents in the area believed it to be refuse from a jet. It falling the same way a cornstalk leaf will fall in the middle of a city street on a calm day. If any have seen geese droppings they are deep green in color and stink to high heaven! The stain is extremely difficult to remove from any surface.

Grackles (of the blackbird family) are causing these marks. We have three large cotton woods at the edge of our property and thousands of grackles roost in them every Fall. We put up with washing the cars almost weekly until they continue their migration. The marks are all over the driveway and northeast end of the house.

I'm in Greenwood and had this stuff all over my car-same color. Have seen a ton on Canadian geese in the area lately.

I'm pretty sure that the Police are taking care of the criminal stuff - not WISH-TV's obligation to do so.

Obviously you missed the point.

Again, the most interesting thing they could find to report on is bird crap?

Young grackles are in all over right now...the juvenile ones are black like crows but have shiny, irredescent feathers. They tend to flock in large masses. Grackles are foragers-they will eat out of the trash, rodents, fish, fruit-basically anything they can get to. I am a birdwatcher and have lots of feeds and the grackles will come in droves and clean the feeders and scare away other birds. Obviously...when the eat-they crap. No big mystery there and no big mystery as to why the color of the "material" can vary.
