County Hatches Plan to Combat Pigeon Problem - 03-21


MADERA – Madera County has a pigeon problem. Hundreds of the birds have taken up residence in and around the downtown Government Center and its open-air parking structure. The large pigeon population creates a health hazard as their droppings can spread disease. The bird feces can also cause damage to the buildings, and the materials used to build their nests can block drainages and make a cozy place for parasites to take up residence.
