Red Vehicles Attract More Bird Droppings


The Daily Mail in the UK is reporting a new study has shown red vehicles attract more bird droppings than any other colour. Researchers looked at more than 1,400 vehicles in five different cities. The most ‘popular’ colours for birds are the following:

Red – 18%
Blue – 14%
Black – 11%
White – 7%
Grey/Silver – 3%
Green – 1%

While this study was conducted for a car accessories chain and the numbers may not hold true for every city it’s interesting note the wide variation in numbers. Red isn’t the most popular vehicle colour in the UK by the way, according to the AA silver is.
