How Australia Deals With Invasive Birds!

Wow, there is no denying it. Approve or disapprove, Melbourne Australia has a “No-Holds Barred”  approach to dealing with invasive/pest birds. This Pigeon Dummy Egg Nest works by encouraging the birds to lay eggs in the structure. Then at night, when the pigeons are asleep a worker access the nests to replace fertilized eggs with dummy eggs. The real eggs are promptly made into omelets.

It is reported that there is a similar program in New York City, but I wasn’t able to find a pic of that one.
