    Set a plastic owl nearby and nothing will bother it. Get one of those plastic ones and attach it with wire or wire ties to your mailbox!! I adore my birds, but if they want to live here, the least they could do is clean up after themselves. They love my front porch which is always scattered in poop!!!

    A spike will prevent them from landing on top and decorating your post, you can paint it to match. If that is not enough, you can buy bird spikes, check out your local Home Depot or Lowes, also at Amason.

    Put something at the top they can't perch on.
