Angry Bird Sh!t

Just spent over three hours pressure washing (big industrial 3000 psi pressure washer) bird sh!t off of our ski dock. 20x24. We always have problems with large birds using the dock to roost in the winter. This year was 10 times worse than it has ever been. The dock is covered in green indoor outdoor carpet and the entire thing was caked in white. It was like blasting plaster off of the floor.

Any ideas on keeping these things away? These are large heron type birds. We get a few in the summer but usually it is somewhat manageable. Would like to keep them away though too. I am thinking scare crow because these birds stay far away as long as we are around.

PS I put this in general discussion since it is what we dock our MCs on between sets and I figured other people may have the same issues.
