Hawks to be deployed in Singapore to scare away nuisance birds!!!

Businesses along Singapore's famous Orchard Road shopping street plan to deploy trained hawks to scare off thousands of birds whose droppings rain down on pedestrians' heads, a report says.

The Straits Times said retailers were in talks with Jurong Bird Park, whose attractions include trained birds of prey, to try a natural solution after artificial methods such as high-pitched recordings failed to drive the birds away.

Wildlife groups estimate that around 2,000 to 5,000 starlings and mynahs roost along Orchard Road in the evening, releasing droppings on pavements and parked cars and creating a din that even overpowers traffic noise. Full story...

They make nests and lay eggs there. There is a big problem of bird droppings inside the ducts which cannot be easily cleaned and emits a very foul smell. Many pigeons die in the ducts causing large presence of maggots and other insects in the duct area.
