REPORT FROM THE GOVERNOR’S OFFICE – Excessive feeding of feral birds that causes offensive odors, property damage or health problems for neighbors would be a public health nuisance under a measure signed into law yesterday by Governor Neil Abercrombie.

The new law—effective immediately—enables the State Health Department to investigate complaints of bird nuisances on private property and enforce the law by issuing warnings or ordering property owners to stop providing excessive amounts of feed.

The bill (HB619) was introduced by State Rep. Gregg Takayama (D-Pearl City, Waimalu, Pacific Palisades) and supported by fellow area legislators Sen. David Ige and Councilmember Breene Harimoto.

“This law will help provide welcome relief to Pearl City residents who have been plagued for years by neighbors whose excessive and inconsiderate bird feeding has attracted flocks of several hundred pigeons, whose droppings and feathers create odors, property damage and aggravation of health problems,” said Rep. Takayama.

Residents in several other Oahu neighborhoods, including Kailua, have raised similar concerns.
