I heard the following on the local ABC radio today.

The Ashburton Shire in the Pilbara of Western Australia has a problem with a
flock of Little Corellas tearing up their synthetic tennis courts.  They say
that the corellas are getting high on the glue!  They are also causing problems
by digging holes in the town oval.

They are looking for ways of controlling or deterring the flock, other than a
suggested culling of about 100 birds.  Any suggestions?
