Falcons

Seneca Meadows and American Falconry Services have been partnering since 2007 to keep our workers, customers and visitors safe. Trained falcons and pyrotechnics (noise makers) have proven to be effective scare tactics to deter scavenger birds that would otherwise swarm equipment and vehicles, at the landfill, and obstruct the vision of our operators. American Falconry Services trains their hybrid Gyrfalcon, Saker, and Peregrine falcons with a lure to do “fly arounds.” Scavenger birds think that the falcons are targeting them instead of the lure, and take off for safer eating grounds.
