Pigeons Beware

This sign is found on the old Davenport Garage of our transit system, the TTC. The garage was built in 1925 to service gas-fueled vehicles and is part of the Hillcrest Complex of the TTC but the building has not been used since 1993 although it is still well maintained. They are doing everything they can to attempt to keep the pigeons away as you can see by all of the spikes.

I have seen similar spikes, looks like they would hurt. Poor Pigeons.

Enjoy your day!

Pigeons are so messy - something has to be done

Lovely sign. Bet the spikes work to keep the pigeons away.

Seen a few of them here as well trying to keep them at bay

I see a lot of those "pigeon spikes" everywhere I go. There are even some where I live. They must be affective but I have to admit when I see birds perched on top of a spikey cactus, I wonder why these work so well.

Sooner or later they figure out a way around it.

There's a spike in their relationships.

I've seen these spikes before and they had a few pigeons on them. They can figure it out so they can rest and do their thing. :)

Pigeons are a real problem...

I am a birder, but I don’t love pigeons...so this works for me. They’ll find somewhere else to perch, they are very adaptable.

Lots of our buildings have spikes too.
