Do you know that Midland has no bylaw covering the number of birds that folks can feed in the town? A friend complained that over the past few years, birds, namely pigeons are using his home’s roof as resting area, washroom and meeting centre for flocks of pigeons in particular.
We drove past their home the other day not that far from where the mayor resides, and were shocked by the numbers of birds that had gathered on the complainant’s roof……we stopped counting after reaching 100.
Seems the birds are attracted to that area of town as a result of someone leaving bird food for them.
Often the man’s wife gets buzzed as she tries to get into her car to go to their own business. They were told by an official nothing could be done until the town came up with a bylaw concerning feeding flocks of birds/pigeons. They plan to speak to a number of councillors including the mayor and have them come see for themselves this excessive exposure of feathered “fouls.”
