Ms. Chemka noted that the Perimeter Detection System is not for birds. It detects intruders through or under the fence ie - deer, small animals. They are currently in the process of add new fencing to keep out burrowing animals.

They have a wildlife specialist who employs various methods to deal with the birds. As the birds get bolder new methods will have to be developed to deal with them. Westchester Airport is not alone in having this problem, it occurs at many airports.

RESULT:REVIEWED
