Home to roost (09 May 2004)


Tsim Siu-tai (Conservationist, Tai Po Environmental Association) describes the nature and characteristics of Hong Kong's House Crows and the problems they create. Michael Leven (Director, Asia Ecological Consultants) warns that these highly adaptable colonists and scavengers which feed on human garbage may endanger HK's native birds and says they should be eliminated to maintain the ecosystem. In Singapore, the population of House Crows increased from 20 in 1968 to 100,000 in 2000 and they have brought much harm to the indigenous birds and the environment. Expert advises HK to deal with the House Crow problem soon before it becomes unmanageable.
