How do I remove Monk Parakeets that are causing extensive damage to my ornamental trees? There is a huge nest on my property with as many as 25 birds causing much damage.

If you have birds damaging your trees, you should contact the Illinois Department of Natural Resources district wildlife biologist in Cook County. Bob Massey can be reached at (815) 476-0256. He has been notified about your question and can provide guidance on how to handle the situation.
