The Evergreen State suffers from a number of pest bird problems. For one, swarms of crows swoop into the city of Sunnyside every night, leaving behind a mess of droppings and creating a health hazard. The birds flock to the area, drawn to its many dairy farms. They consume the cow feed on the outskirts of town during the day, then move toward downtown when night falls, wreaking havoc with commercial businesses.
Washington also has a gull problem. This big birds are especially numerous on the outer coast and on the shores of Puget Sound, but many can be found further inland on lakes, ponds and along rivers. They can be noisy, aggressive, and leave huge amounts of droppings on commercial property.
Woodpeckers can also be a problem, with more than a dozen different species damaging utility poles and leaving holes in the siding of commercial structures. Most commonly seen are the northern flicker and the downy woodpecker.
Finally, like most states, many commercial areas of Washington are often besieged by pigeons. These “rats with wings” are messy and their droppings can carry a number of disease.
