I WASHINGTON 1AP1 The army has a new enemy vvitii 14 million airborne troops a noisy horde of birds roosting in a pine grove. The birds, mostly starlings, are flocking to the pine forests of Fort Campbell. Kv , and the Milan army ammunition plant in Tennessee as in pie vious autumns but this year the army is preparing a light to the finish A Pentagon spokesman said Tuesday the army plans to spray the birds with a deter gent that will remove Hie natural oil from their feathers. The oil protects them from inclement weather and when the temperature drops below 45, they will die from the cold. The Environmental Defense Fund says there are more humane ways of handling the problem but does not dispute the need to get rid of the estimated 11 million blackbirds Maureen Hinkle, a }>es-ticidis expert at the environmental organization, suggested that the army set up a large funnel near the roosting gioiiii'is with a light a* the end of it It the light is turned on iii Hie middle of the night, the birds will fly directly into it killing themselves instantly as they strike the lens, she said. The birds became a problem several years ago when pine groves at Fort Campbell and the ammunition plant matured to a point where they provided ideal roosting grounds. There are few natural predators, and nearby farms provide sufficient grain fields for the birds to raid for food. Recent warm winters have reduced the normal mortality rate. said the Smithsonian Institution’s Eugene Morton. "Perhaps the best thing is trying lo live with the problem.” he suggested. But in Hopkinsville, Ky ., 15 miles north of the army {Mist, the town clerk, Terry Rogers, said the birds must go “We grow quite a bit of grain and they've done hundreds of thousands oi dollars’ damage,” bt* said, explaining tha* their foraging trips t ike them over a PH) square-mile area. The Kentucky department of agriculture estimated last year that -farmers near the post suffered a IO (Havent to 20 percent seed loss to the birds. Rogers said. Ile said the army has tried to thin out the groves and Scare the birds tram landing by firing loud volleys, hut has been unsuccessful. Besides, he said, this would simply chase them from army property into privately-owned fields. The Environmental Defense Fund said it would consider seeking court action to halt the army if the army does not first publish an assessment of the environmental impact of its attack. The fund also said doves, robins and bluebirds nesting in the pine trees would be killed by the aerial detergent, known as Tcrgitol, and the effect on plant life has not yet been evaluated. Bul Major f 'tulip Fogel, a Pentagon spokesman, aid the army considered its plan for more than a year.
