Bird Damage Management Conference
Blackbirds, starlings, corvids, and vultures cause threats to agriculture, personal property, aircraft safety, and human health. The Bird Damage Management Conference provided a venue for professionals from across the U.S. to discuss and share management approaches, research strategies, policy, and messaging regarding the management of blackbirds, starlings, corvids, and vultures. They focused on developing successful (cost effective and environmentally sound) strategies and tools for bird damage mitigation.
