Turkey vultures are "more than a nuisance," Columbia resident Cy Greenya told borough council Monday.
Greenya estimates the number of turkey and black vultures that roost in the trees along the back of his property to be near 100. They tear up roof shingles and destroy patio furniture. The vast amount of feces, he said, must be a health hazard.
Vultures are federally-protected migratory birds, he said, so property owners have limited options in dealing with the problem.
