Who would have thought...Birds prefer pooping on red cars

Birds are very selective. A new study has revealed red cars attract more bird droppings than any other color. The research, conducted by online retailer Halfords, revealed red vehicles made up 18 percent of cars marked by birds, while blue followed along in second place at 14 percent. Black cars come off third-best with 11percent, followed by grey and metallic with 3 percent. The Green vehicles are off the rating with only 1 percent of the chance to get pooped by bird.


The study also asked owners how quickly they removed bird droppings from their vehicle's paint. Only one in six said they took care of the problem immediately, while more than half waited until the next car wash.
