CALDWELL -- The Pickles Butte Landfill in Canyon County is fighting pesky birds with birds.

They are using the new Avian Mitigation Drone that is constructed to look like an eagle.

Controlled by a remote, the eagle drone is being used to keep flocks of seagulls away.

Landfill Director Jack Biddle say the seagulls have bombarded employees, equipment and the public with droppings.

He also says this is the most successful technique to keeping the birds away.
