150,000 Birds Descend On Nashville's Symphony Center

Keep your eyes to the skies outside Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center. 150,000 birds have taken over the symphony hall and are roosting, while occasionally flying in menacing flocks circling downtown. The Symphony has nothing to do the birds. The Purple Martins have pooped on EVERYTHING. The roof, railings, stairs, statues, trees, landscaping, and courtyards are covered with bird poop.

"They should just kick them out" you say. But no! The Purple Martins are a protected species who are here for just a few weeks to prepare for their trip to South America. Messing with this rest stop for them could affect the global population of the bird.

The Tennessee Wildlife Federation has team up with the Nature Conservancy to help raise money to clean up the symphony after they leave (in about a week).
