Canada geese, as beautiful as they may be in flight, are a messy nuisance when they congregate on land and leave their droppings everywhere. Every town in the region has its trouble spots, and the most recent to come to the public eye is in Milford, where the geese have grown comfortable around the lower duck pond behind City Hall.

"This violent and brutal attack on wildlife is not strategic and not pro-active," said Birnkrant. "If the geese are attracted to the area, no matter how many times you round them up for slaughter, they are going to come back. The landscape needs to be modified so it's not attractive to birds."

One landscape feature Birnkrant pointed at specifically is a planned garbage transfer station in College Point near the end of a runway at LaGuardia Airport.
