Portland crows leave their mark on downtown park

December 27, 2013

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Visitors to Chapman Square in downtown Portland are finding benches and walkways covered with bird droppings.

A tourist from Philadelphia, Joe Goodman, told KOIN it's a disgusting mess.

Parks and Recreation development manager Barrett Anderson says an unusually large number of crows are occupying the square. Anderson says if the dry weather continues the staff will pressure wash the sidewalks after the first of the year.
