According to a story in today's P-B, City officials seem pleased with the noise-laser-dive-bombing-raptor program they're paying for to keep crows away from downtown. Anecdotally, at least, there seem to be a lot fewer crows downtown these days. But at what cost to Rochester neighborhoods? I'm all for the bird dispersal program. It was worth a try. But if we're just shooing them away from the Mayo Clinic and other downtown buildings and into smaller groups in neighborhoods have we solved a problem? Just asking.
