ENCORE: Nampa Officials Get Creative With Displacing Nuisance Crows

It's not exactly clear why tens of thousands of crows chose Nampa, Idaho as their winter destination. Some residents love them. But they roost in tree branches and power lines, and their noise and waste is a source of frustration for residents.

This segment originally aired on February 13, 2019.

Nampa officials have been battling an infestation of crows for years. The birds have overwhelmed the community with their noise and waste and the city has been scrambling to find a humane way of dispatching of them. Mountain West News Bureau correspondent Amanda Peacher joins Idaho Matters to discuss some of the solutions they have found.
