Oklahoma City Spraying Purple Martins with Fire Hoses

10,000 Birds

A large roost of Purple Martins at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum is considered a nuisance because of their droppings so they are being sprayed with fire hoses. Seriously. You can email the director of the memorial at kw@oklahomacitynationalmem orial.org and you should, but don’t expect any remorse or concern, just a form-written response about how gross the bird poop is.
