WICHITA FALLS - With the arrival of spring, the large flock of great-tailed grackles that have gathered by the thousands in the center of town may soon be on their way.
Lou Kreidler, director of the Wichita Falls-Wichita County Public Health District, said they have received complaints about the birds and the excrement they leave behind under trees and around businesses in the heavily trafficked area of Kemp Boulevard and Call Field Road.
“The city does not do bird control, except when they interfere with aviation,” Kreidler said.
