Letter: There must be a better solution than gunshots to disperse bird 
Letter

Dear editor:

I have to think that in 2019 there’s a more appropriate way of disbursing birds than an air cannon that goes off hundreds of times a day, (“Residents and growers at an impasse on bird banger noise,” Oct 17).

Nets, streamers, lights are all options that a considerate individual would look at. 

Besides residents like myself on York Road, there are scores of surrounding homes that can hear the noise.

Being woken up to gunshots 30 minutes before sunrise may give you an early start to the day, but as the area increases its tax base with new residents an air cannon isn’t a long-term solution.
