Here's a sample:

"Although these beautiful birds have developed a loyal following over the years — and established other colonies in Ridgefield and Leonia — they can create big headaches. They have a terrible tendency to build their huge stick nests atop utility poles, creating all sorts of costly problems.

"The encouraging news is that just as the birds have adapted to North Jersey, perhaps — just perhaps — we may be learning how to adapt to them."
