Take a little off the top of pesky bird population

Seagulls, crows poop-bombing Victoria

Does anyone else think there are too many seagulls and crows in our city? It seems the only birds we see are these noisy and aggressive birds which attack us and drive out the more timid birds. Not only do they have no natural enemies but there is, I believe, a law which states that we are not allowed to disturb their nests or eggs, at least in regards to seagulls.

Surely these aggressive and noisy birds which have fouled all our sidewalks and roofs with their excrement are not in any danger of extinction!

Is there any way to reduce the numbers of these birds, which are breeding in an unnatural way and nesting on the roofs of so many buildings in the city?
