Default Just otters?

Just otters? Do you have trouble with any other creatures taking up residence in the boathouse?

I had a big problem with birds and they would perch on lights or ceiling beams and leave their droppings all over the boat. It only occurs for the first month or so of the season.

The overhead door in the boathouse comes down to about a foot above the water at the spring water level and they would just fly under it. I finally made a wood beam with lattice attached that goes across the opening below the door and hangs down and blocks their access. It only has to stay there until mid June. I assume that by then the birds have found another place to hang around.
