Sonic Cannons to Frighten Birds

Does anyone have experience with this issue?

I live in a small farming community in the Rio Grande migratory corridor and just returned from an overseas journey.

Yesterday, a cannon exploded EVERY MINUTE until around 2 p.m., when it started to rain. I live at the edge of the valley and birds normally on my property were frightened away.

I am a retired criminal trial lawyer who knows very little about this issue and would appreciate any knowledge or advice you could share. I didn’t envision a return to the courtroom, but I will to protect those I love.

Thank you.
