The article notes that for a few hours after dusk, the sky above the city’s riverbank, piazzas and wealthy neighborhoods becomes plagued by thousands of European starlings zooming back and forth in fantastic tornado-like formations. Cacophonous calls echo throughout the city, as the dark-winged creatures soar through the air in syn.

Rome’s pedestrians, along with roads, cars and monuments, soon become targets for a storm of droppings.

For the past three years, biologist Andrea Buscemi and her crew of volunteer bird-busters have spent the month of November broadcasting distress calls throughout the greenest neighborhoods in Rome.
