Pyrotechnics and Lasers?

The United States Department of Agriculture-Wildlife Services will implement a variety of methods to discourage starlings from roosting in Downtown this fall, according to Indianapolis Downtown, Inc.

In the evenings (beginning 20 October), USDA-WS staff -- in uniform and working from the sidewalks and selected rooftops downtown -- will be using a variety of methods including pyrotechnics and lasers. The pyrotechnics make loud shrill sounds and booms.

Watch for the excitement in a four block area surrounding Monument Circle: Illinois, Washington, Ohio and Pennsylvania streets; the Indiana State House perimeter; in University Park, and along South Meridian Street from Washington to Maryland streets.
