Well, what would happen is that they would land on the window sill, and go
"coo, coo, coo" and look into the aperture of the laser device to see what
the pretty shiney light was, and go "coo, coo, coo, CWAAARK!" and fall

The problem was solved simply by moving that end of the laser link to
somewhere less susceptible to blinding pigeons :)
