Look at that jerk!

“I find your lack of cooperation………disturbing.”
I had an ultrasonic mouse repellant that worked about as well as this device.
Proof positive that animals don’t read worth a damn.
That looks like a Mourning dove; dumbest jerks on the planet. They will nest anywhere including places like this:

Oddly, we don’t have that stupid jerk bird in Seattle, but they were everywhere in California. They would throw down like 3 twigs on top of the wall outside my kitchen window where the neighborhood cat and squirrels like to commute. They are an embarrassment to birdumb.

Obviously she is NOT an ultrasonic bird.
Ok, mourning doves aren’t mental giants like crows or parrots. But I don’t see anything particularly stupid about those choices of nest site. They’re well up off the grouind and offer good surfaces for a bit of twig-weaving.. Not sure, but I think that, like their close relatives pigeons (aka “rock doves”) in the wild, they’re cliff-.ledge nesters.
Years ago during a rough, cold winter, I found a mourning dove dead of exposure in my yard, huddled against a ridge of frozen snow. I picked it up and admired the subtle beauty of its markings and coloration, and the silky softness of its feathers.
I’d take a mourning dove in the Oval Office over the current occupant any day. No harm done except maybe droppings on the carpet, and much prettier.
“Uh, say, Jerk Human, did you pay a lot for this, thing? HA HA! Very Comfortable. Thank you. And, convenient.!”
It kind of makes sense. Morning doves aren’t into screaming and fighting like blue jays and starlings, so nesting near a box that promises to keep other birds away might be worth a small effort to acclimatize oneself to the sound of ultrasonic repelling.
If that box is working it may be throwing off some welcome heat.
Occam’s razor: there’s no power to that pole. Or the thing’s a p.o.s. But it should be noted that neither of these possibilities absolves the bird of being a jerk.
Yeah, I’ve been learning a lesson the hard way, that shit you buy off of Facebook/Instagram ads rarely works as advertised, if you even get the shit delivered in the first place. 😦
