Getting Rid of the Crows Again in Albany

It's an annual winter ritual in the city of Albany, make a lot of noise and use pyrotechnics to disperse groups of crows that gather at this time of the year.

USDA Wildlife Specialist Tyler DeLisle says the birds like to congregate in the city in the winter because it's warmer than in a rural area.

DeLisle also says the goal is not to harm the crows, but to get them into a smaller and more manageable roosting size where they can create a lot less damage.

Crews will be at it in the early evening hours for the next couple of weeks.
