Default Any suggestions for dealing with a bird?

I cant believe I'm posting this but... there are a few birds at my house that enjoy the heck out of constantly sitting on my car and/or truck mirrors, and taking a crap.

Anyway, I would shoot them, but I prefer not to, I don't kill it if I dont intend to eat it. Plus I'm not shooting at my car. Any suggestions? Do you think armor-all or tire cleaner would keep them away?

I said I prefer not to shoot them, I didnt say that I wont.

Crush em up and mix with some bird seed and put on your truck. The birds will eat it and pop like a zit.

Agreed, I want a bald eagle.

A small hawk would probably be more practical... and cheaper.
