We were just discussing re shingling our home when I ran into this article talking about the side effects of bird feces. Since we live along the bay I had mentioned the fact that some birds (mostly seagulls) like to take up residence along certain homes. Would the coloration of a roof possibly be why they perch on some and not others. Their feces will take the finish off of your car if not removed promptly so I'm wondering if shingle coloration makes a difference or not?
