“(MYFOX NATIONAL) – It looked like something out of an Alfred Hitchcock film or “Jurassic Park.”
Peter Hitchener, an anchor on Australia’s Channel Nine news , was on camera on Wednesday night when a giant seagull appeared on the screen behind him. Turns out it was a normal-sized bird that was magnified by the camera shooting the skyline.”
Facility Managers, Business Owners, and anyone responsible for building maintenance know all to well that pest birds often end up in spaces they just shouldnt be! Whether it’s seagulls on a roofline, pigeons nesting under eaves, or sparrows hanging out on a sign, the “mess” they leave behind can damage building materials and reduce the aesthetics of an area. Unless giant birds are going to be a feature on this news station, they should really think about bird proofing the area, something as simple as bird spikes would likely keep the seagull away.
