Report Details

Oceanfront home had a speaker aimed at the beach and was broadcasting the loud screeches and chatter of birds. It was not only annoying for those walking the beach but it was driving the wild birds nuts. If it's an attempt to keep birds away from their house, it's not working. Seagulls, pigeons, crows, etc. were all flying up to the speaker. Reported problem to the sheriff who said there's not much he could do about it, if it's during the daytime. Am I correct in thinking that a problem such as this could be termed "wildlife harrassment"?

Just wanted to say there have been a lot of brown pelicans this season, more than I've ever seen, and I'm wondering if they will stay for the winter?
