LOL good one Pavel, great stuff!
We get a variety of birds, but no white herons so far. My favorite is the lovely cardinal and his mate. They come and flit through the trees out back. And as to what we do when the duck poos in the pool...the filters get it i'd assume. lol My husband is the "pool boy" and he does a very thorough job. I'm waiting for the day he comes in the house upset that there is a big snake in the pool. lol
The issue I had with ducks in the pool is the issue of algae. Specifically an algae that is very hard to eradicate, one which attaches to swim trunks, floaties, whatever was in the pool. It is nasty - every time I got it I had to throw everything into the pool - trunks, floaties, everything and then treat them all with one big dose of something. They would bring it in on their little fluffy butts. Now the crazy ducks can be found in bushes with their little nests.
We enjoy the visitors to our home, but I do get tired of the pigeon poo... And the toads - goodness me! - I don't know how they can lay out their droppings! They must be eating lots of bugs for me. My husband and I joke about being careful to not trip over the "toadstools" - and I don't mean mushrooms!
