I am living in a town home in one of the North-west suburbs of Chicago. This is a newly constructed town-home with wooden decks in the patios of all the residents. The community is not yet fully construction completed.
My children like to feed birds and we put bird seeds in our patio. Now i see that since the day i started bird-feeding, I am starting to see bird droppings in both my immediate neighbor's patios.
I understand bird-feeding is unlawful in Chicago city area, but i am a bit unaware of the law in this place since i didnt see any boards that i usually see in Chicago.
I see one of my immediate neighbor has noticed this and he has installed the silver strips on the edges of his patio that keeps birds away from his place. My other neighbor has not yet moved in and might not be aware of this.
Now my question is - Am i allowed bird-feeding in my patio? What if in future one of my neighbors takes objection? Is there anything in Illinois law that protects my right of bird-feeding in my property?
