fta "Now it's 4:00pm or 3:00pm ... there's not a bird to be seen. But come 5:00pm or 5:30pm, 6:00pm, it's just a noisy wildlife sanctuary," he said.

BIRDS GOT HAPPY HOUR!

Hayley Dunne, 8, who lives in the town says: "They are so noisy and they poo everywhere and they make the town dirty. They are so noisy and they wake us up in the morning when we're trying to sleep."

Really reporter?

Oh yeah, shoot at birds perched on power lines. I eagerly await the followup greenlight.

Can't they lure them down to the ground then flood the area with CO2 until they all die of suffocation?

Galahs are also known as Rose-breasted cockatoos.

Of course, being a guy, I see "Rose-breasted" and I immediately think of:

Those rosy Galah feathers sure would make a spiffy shamanic headdress, fabulous even.

There are about 3,000 Canada geese in Seattle and 25,000 in the Puget Sound  region, according to Dewey Potter, the park department's spokeswoman.

Potter said workers with the Department of Agriculture will start rounding up geese as soon as they start molting, in late June or early July. That's when they're unable to fly. This year, as many as 3,000 geese will be killed. And 2,000 eggs will be addled -- suffocating the embryo by covering it in oil.

One agent tossed bread toward a gaggle. The geese left the water and were herded into a cage. The workers grabbed the geese by the neck and stuffed them into a gas chamber sitting in the bed of a truck.

Yikes. Would hate to be the person shoving them into the gas chamber.

"I think the biggest fact is the galahs and cockatoos, they've just impacted in our shire in our township like never before."

Queenslanders are such farking retards. "Impacted in our shire"? Definitely said in a Pauline Hanson accent.

Why can't they all just get along?
Like the harmony between man and nature that exists in Austin, the Grackles have the sky and the bipeds have the ground, perfect harmony. Sure, a few rogue Grackles will do poop-bombs on a car or two outside Whole Foods on Lamar, but then there's a couple of weird people in Austin and they have been known to send poop-bombs skyward right back at them. I had one particular woman in that town who (between extensive tattoo sittings and marathon angst-fests at Mags) would on occasion rip her bloomers off, stand on her head, and throw mad sharts at the moon. If a few Grackles got corn on their feathers it was just too bad.
Harmony, man and bird, it's beautiful.

Apparently, the animals have decided that we get N and S America, Europe, Asia and parts of Africa and they get Australia.

Ugh... Galahs... I remember the cooking instructions.

You put a galah and a rock into the fire. When the rock goes soft you can eat the galah.

The birds. When I was doing fieldwork in South Australia, I never had to worry about setting an alarm to wake up, because every morning, about 15 minutes before sunrise, the galah chorus would begin like clockwork. And a tree full of roosting galahs is pretty damned noisy.

/a pretty sight to see a tree full of pink and grey, but it does get old eventually

Ugh - old joke here about the recipe for cooking galahs and cockatoos (doubtless there are thousands of local variants).

Get yourself a cockatoo, a couple of rocks and a good size pot.   Fill the pot with water and place over an open fire.  Bring the water to a boil, and then put the cockatoo and rocks in.

Allow to boil for four to six hours.

Then, throw away the cockatoo and eat the rocks.

No.  Get cats.  They take  care of the birds.  Then get snakes to get rid of the cats.  Import Gorillas to kill the snakes and in winter, the Gorilla's simply freeze to death.  Another problem solved.

The trickiest part is removing the venom sacs without them rupturing and ruining the whole bird.

/assumes everything in Australia has a venom sac until proven otherwise
