Turkey Buzzards' Mess Has Mount Holly Residents Fed Up

Posted: Updated:
MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. -

Whether you call them vultures or buzzards, people in one Burlington County community call them a disgusting nuisance. And they've tried everything to shoo the scavengers away!

Mount Holly residents say it's what these birds are leaving behind that stinks up the neighborhood.

The vultures are leaving their droppings all over the place, including in yards, on driveways and on homes and cars.

One resident says he remembers the buzzards being around when he was a child.

But everyone these days seems to agree there are more and more of them every year, and that's why they're speaking up.

One resident says he recently bought a white car because he was so tired of seeing the bird poop on his car.

The township manager tells FOX 29 officials are working with the Department of Agriculture to find a way to get the birds to relocate out of the neighborhood.

FOX 29's Stephanie Esposito ventured out to Mount Holly to see the mess first-hand.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
