USDA Begins Ongoing Bird Dispersal Measures for Airport Safety

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has begun to non-lethally disperse birds away from the SouthEast Connector project site wetlands area, near the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Due to the winter migration, there has been an uptick in the number of birds, specifically gulls, flying between Virginia Lake and the SouthEast Connector project site, near the wetlands. The gulls fly through the Reno-Tahoe International Airport airfields and pose a safety threat to humans and aircraft.
