JULY 2011: Any fan of horror movies may recall the Hitchcock classic 'The Birds' or even Roger Corman's 'The Raven'. Movies aside, birds can represent a real life horror story at airports.
Sydney Airport was recently contacted by Avisure, a company that works to reduce the danger of birdstrikes at airports. The Avisure biologist had this to report:
"I got a call this morning regarding a group of ravens feeding around the taxi holding bay. There are plenty of bins in the area, however the ravens were feeding on food scraps on the ground. Obviously this is an education issue (people are throwing food onto the ground), signage would help, but it would also be good if the SACL staff could take a more active role in policing this as well."
Sydney Airport asks all in the taxi industry to DO THE RIGHT THING - throwing food scraps on the ground is not only environmentally unfriendly but it could have disasterous consequences near an airport.
