The pigeon problem solution has changed.
I have decided based on the plastic netting sheet I bought and another apartment's balcony to change my solution to the pigeons. I have decided to fence off the whole balcony with some wood poles/sticks holding up plastic netting. In fact, I will build a box frame around the inside of the whole balcony and then wrap the whole box frame in plastic netting. Now I just need to buy some 1 inch by 1 inch wood pieces for the frame structure. I need to go out on the balcony to measure the lengths I need to buy. I also have the hardware to attach the frame pieces. I will have to build it on the balcony. I also need to buy about four or five more sheets of netting but each sheet is under five dollars. It is still not warm enough to put the air conditioner in and I can't quite afford the wood poles/sticks yet. In about a week I can buy them. I also have to solve the transportation problem of getting the wood home from the lumber store as I will probably not be allowed to bring them home on a bus like most things I buy. I am hoping the lumber store can deliver the wood.
