Rochester city officials say the recent work to remove crows from the downtown area seems to have worked.
As we've reported, the city hired a bird abatement company which used hawks, lasers and airhorns to scare an estimated 10,000 crows from the downtown area.
The company wrapped up its work earlier this week, and according to city officials, it looks as if it worked.
They say there appears to be less than 500 crows that roost in the area now.
The question is will it last.
Rochester Assistant City Administrator, Gary Neumann, says the city is in a waiting period now, to see if the birds come back.
If they do, Neumann says the city will likely bring the bird abatement company back for a few more days.
