The residents of the Continental Garden apartment complex have to clean up every morning. Flocks of black birds estimated in the thousands have made the area around the buildings their home. All of those birds leave droppings on cars, buildings and everything else outside.
The birds roost in trees around the apartments at night. The droppings are thick enough on some trees to smother and kill them.
O'Connor Enterprises owns Continental Garden. They have teamed up with their neighbor, Principle Financial and the USDA wildlife division to get rid of the birds.
They are planning on using fireworks to break up the flocks of birds. They hope to force the birds to a new location. There is no set time as to when the USDA will be able to begin scaring off the birds.
Residents say they are worried to walk outside when the birds are around because they are bombarded by droppings.
