Blueberry Farms Have Unique Watchdogs


Oregon’s larger blueberry farmers are using trained falcons to keep starlings out of their fields.  Getty Pollard runs a company that trains the birds to act was watch dogs against starlings.  He says falcons work much better than orchard cannons or other noise makers, because the birds learn the noise makers won't hurt them.  The falcons will kill them if they remain in the fields.
