Pyrotechnics in Use to Shoo Downtown Crows

SPRINGFIELD (Feb. 5, 2020) – The City of Springfield will use pyrotechnics to prevent flocks of crows from roosting downtown.

City Service crews will set off the pyrotechnics at sundown on Mondays through Thursdays in the downtown area. The detonations are loud and meant to disperse flocks of crows from downtown.

Some private organizations in the area use similar techniques, so residents nearby may hear multiple waves of pyrotechnics in the effort to disperse the crows
