City of Albany Prepares to Scare Crows Out of Downtown

Time once again to stone the crows, or at least, scare them out of downtown Albany.  

Starting today, wildlife biologists will use a variety of non-lethal, but very loud, techniques to drive away the thousands of crows who gather in the city at this time of year.  Plan involves things like fireworks, spotlights, non-harmful lasers, and recorded calls of crows in distress designed to convince them to fly away.  

City officials say people should be prepared for loud noises and flashing lights.
