    Howdy folks.

    Three of our birds apparently happy with the grass in our backyard. They like to hop up on the north fence and cruise into the neighbor's yard. He doesn't seem to mind, but I don't want to make a habit of it. Clipping wings is an option. Can you all suggest anything else?

    Clip one wing, & run a hot wire slightly above the fence. Worked for me.
