Songbirds They Ain’t

One of the things I’ve noticed on this visit is how bad the bird problem has become downtown. Show up in Sundance Square around dawn or dusk, and you’ll see the grackles flying in from all over the place, squawking up a storm and crapping all over the place. Well, the good news is, there’s a plan coming together (bugmenot)involving local residents, guns and pyrotechnics permits.

Apparently, folks are going to get proper training in the use of starters’ pistols and cracker shells in order to chase off the grackles from downtown.

Am I the only one who thinks we ought to employ the pied piper of Hamlin instead?
