For Goodness' sake, don't let any officials know that your tower is a 
danger to mice, rats, rabbits and fish as well as to birds!  That 
REALLY will spell trouble for us!

And now, because the bird-strike thread has restarted (what is it? 
about once a year?) I'll tell my story about how my tower is a threat 
to the local songbirds.  We have a beautiful pair of Cooper's hawks 
that nest nearby, and they sometimes perch on my Yagi as a handy 
lookout.  (They are birds, and they don't seem to be harmed.)  But 
boy, you can't find a visible songbird around when they are on their 
antenna.  You can look up what Cooper's hawks like to eat, if you 
want to.
