HOW TO MAKE AN AIRPORT UNATTRACTIVE TO BIRDS

The paper presents methods for modifying the environment around airports to discourage the habitation of birds. The experience of the German Air Force is used as a model. Among the methods considered are sitting dumps far from runways, allowing grass to grow long and remain damp (because this environment is less suitable for the growth of large bird colonies), and allowing the growth of woods and thickets in the airport vicinity (because this habitat is suitable for smaller birds, which present less of a hazard to air traffic).
