The pigeons feel good in the city, except that the people who run the city are not explicitly happy about it. In addition to the fact that their excrement can even spread disease, it greatly deteriorates the aesthetics of buildings and sidewalks.
Of course, Budapest also faces this problem. In Nyugati tér, for example, there have been so many birds that have increased expectations that the excrement of these birds covers the square. By now, the situation has become almost unmanageable.
Now they want to entrust the maintenance of order to the power of nature. This means that a professional falconer will appear on the square and, of course, he will bring his birds of prey, the natural enemy of pigeons, with him.
It is estimated that there may be thousands of pigeons in the area, which the area can no longer support. The purpose of this solution is not for predators to pick off the pigeons in the air. They won't even touch them. In theory, the presence of predators will be enough to prevent many of the pigeons from venturing to the elbows. In order for the falconer's work to look worthwhile, it will probably take more time. However, since this problem has been going on for a long time, a month or two here or there doesn't matter anymore.
