What about building some flower boxes that fit over the railing? Like these http://squarefootgardening.mybisi.c ... ls-mix-filled-fence-box-in-4-lengths

If you can't get the link to work go to square foot gardening.com and find the products area- look for them there and buy a few or build your own.

I'd build my own, it would just be a rectangular box with 2 rails on the bottom so they can set over your railing- sort of like the monorail at Disneyland!!!

My friend had the same problem. The birds pooped on her porch. They put spikes on the roof railings and they disappeared. Hope I helped.

You can buy a few rubber snakes (find them at a toy store) and hang them in various places. This should scare off the birds.

Stretch some clear monfilament fishing line (10#) down the rail about 3 inches above the rail. Works like a charm for me at my beach house. After a couple of weeks the birds leave the rails alone.
