Lawn Sign Fever, getting ready for spring!
Who will be moving in?
Do you see feathers, bird droppings or twigs? You might have a new neighorbood in the wing, tail, or engine of the Aircraft. Our feathered friend has decide to build an Airplane Condo for nesting. An engine is a nice place to stay warm in the spring and start a family. Ofcourse, our feathered friend never throught of taking her family of eggs for a flight in the aircraft or having her well built nest catch on fire. Not only will her eggs get cooked, but you might have well done rings in your cylinder or your feet may become warmer then you ever wanted. Toasted feet, I call that “no fun at all”.
Your best defense against birds nest is a GOOD Preflight Inspection. Since birds are notorious for building nests in aircraft with depris, the best items to look for is, WOW, depris. Birds get alittle excited while building their nests. They may leave their dropping close to their Aircraft Condo’s Entrance. They are tired after a hard day of working, flying back and forth with all those fancy Condo trimings. Clean up after theirselves? Heck No!. Hense, with a little preflight detective work and determination, you should find their Condos. Take a good look in the engine, the wings, and tail or any little opening the birds might try to sneek into for living.
Now us humans do try to plug up holes, with such things as cowl plugs, tail plugs, etc. Remember to remove these plugs before flight, and replace them after flight. Maybe the birds will decide to build their Airplane Condo in another aircraft the just sits on the field and never flys. That way, we will both be happy and can co-exist as neighorbors.
