Re the bird - as Bird Lady says - can you describe it, or better still , get a pic if you can llaura. Someone will be able to ID it for you.
As previously mentioned, using better quality and less food will really help, but there will be plenty of shrubs you could use for 'disguising' the mess, so can you give us an idea of the size of the space you have as well - should have asked you that before (!)- and what else is nearby- fences, walls , size of existing flower bed etc. Evergreens would obviously be better but I'm guessing you don't want anything too fast growing as it means more work for you keeping it under control and defeats the purpose! Soil and aspect will affect it so let us know what they are too.
