Robot birds tackle poop problem



The latest weapon in the battle against pigeon poop has been unveiled - a scary robotic bird.

Ten of the robotic birds are being brought into the city centre to scare off the pigeons and visitors are being warned not to give them food.

The robot birds look like peregrine falcons - a big enemy of pigeons - and they can flap their wings and squawk. It's hoped they will frighten off the pigeons - making the poop problem a thing of the past. The council wants the pigeons to keep to the city's parks.
