That is A LOT of birds! A Florida airport is hiring a full-time avian expert at $76,000 a year to stop birds from fowl-ing up its flights.

Up until now, airport staff took turns firing deafening flare guns and propane cannons into the air to ward off vultures, grackles, American kestrels, cattle egrets, doves, pigeons and occasionally a pelican or seagull.

“We’re not just hiring somebody you can find at a park,” said Mike Nonnemacher, the airport operations director for Broward County.

“The $118,000 is pennies compared to losing a $2 million engine,” he said. “We’re being proactive.”
