Firing Warning Shots At Birds To Save Their Lives

Scaring migrating birds off a toxic lake in Montana:

Interesting video.  They are using so many different methods.. Initially I thought it seemed like an easy enough problem that could be taken care of by more drones with some AI.  They mention at around 5:28 though, that each bird responds differently to different scaring methods like drones etc.  Definitely an interesting problem to solve; terrible that it’s yet another man made issue.
