The back looks like someone has just tipped a bucket of owl poo over it! It must stink, hope you have a powerful jetwash but not too powerful to take the paint with it!

How can you tell the difference between owl poo and normal (bird) poo!? :?

(That's not a joke btw - it's a proper question.) :D

I am no expert on bird poo!!! :D He said that it came from a barn with owls nesting in it so I just assumed.

From experience if its covered in bird shite and has been for a while the paintwork will be wrecked as the acid in the shi*e eats through paint. The white GTI auto I bought a couple of years ago had been target practice for a large number of pidgeons and was ruined.

Owls shit like normal birds but honk up 'pellets' which are the bits they cant digest such as skin, fur and bones. If they shat them out they would soon be rather constipated and die.

I would have thought with a wizard ( pun intended ) user name like Merlyn,
A knowledge of owls is a given , or is that just the ones that have been educated at Hogwarts :D

:D They don't all have owls ya know, Ron had a rat and Hermione had a cat. I'm more of a cat woman myself. My mum is big on owls though. Whether it's owl poo or golden eagle poo there's a lot of it and I wouldn't want the task of getting it off, toxic stuff!

Look on the bright side, while there are birds of prey near the car, at least the rats or mice can't make a nest in it, and totally ruin it...like they have in my CX22TRS.

I'm going to have to scrap that car now.
