Victoria’s bird population too big

Does anyone else think there are too many seagulls and crows in Victoria?

Does anyone else think there are too many seagulls and crows in Victoria?

It seems the only birds we see are these noisy and aggressive birds that attack us and drive out the more timid birds.

They have no natural enemies and there is, I believe, a law which states that we are not allowed to disturb nests or eggs, at least in regards to seagulls.

Surely these aggressive and noisy birds, which have fouled all our sidewalks and roofs, 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?
