I think the idea is to make them uneven, to deter them from flying out, and getting into trouble/mischief.
don't know how to deter them, but I noticed yesterday that one of my birds looked thinner and blacker than the others! It flew off when I came near, and it wasn't stealing their supper from under their beaks, maybe it was hoping for leftovers. I can't keep them off the cherry tree either, they have ...
Yes, our cat is always drinking outside.
