A bit OT perhaps, but cubical quads don't seem to attract birds like
yagis do. With mine, having the spreaders on a diagonal and the wires
parallel and vertical to the earth, I have never seen a bird on either
one. I suppose a really determined bird could find a perch but it must
be uncomfortable for them. They can still perch on the boom or other
parts of the tower, but the radiating elements would be bird-free.

Just something to keep in mind.
