The title of "New Approaches to Alleviating Migratory Bird Damage" does not encompass the broad array of efforts being made through research, but rather is limited to new efforts being made through our Animal Damage Control operational program. My primary emphasis will be on the "Lure Crop" approach. The standard Service approach to resolving migratory bird depredation problems has been to conduct field demonstrations and provide information and materials for moving the birds away from the damage site.
