Hey all.
   Having a new problem with the pond.  This afternoon, I went out to
check on things during lunch, and pulled out a total of SEVEN dead
blackbirds.  Yesterday, I pulled out one.  Last year, I hadone black bird,
and a sparrow, which was a rare enough occurence to not warrant it a
problem.  Any ideas on helping these guys get out, or getting them to stay
out?  Are they after a bath and a drink, or interested in eating the
guppies/  I'm hesitant to stock anything in there, and certainly can't
enjoy the pond with the flies buzzing around, looking for more food.  The
pond, in case anyone doesn't know, is a childs wading pool sunk into the
ground.  I'm curious as to ideas why its never been a past problem.  The
pond previously was a disgusting, hot neon pink.  This year, its a more
subdued disgusting blue. :) Could it be the bright colour warned them off?
If so, any ideas on how to get them warned off again?
