The Crows learned to shoot down the aircraft used to deliver packages in Australia.
Mexico City (apro). -In Australia, ravens and other birds attacked drones in a town. Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc. had to suspend Wing, its air service.
A Canberra Times article entitled: “They think it’s the Terminator: Angry Birds shoots Down the Delivered Drone” contains detailed descriptions about the birds that attacked small aircraft in Harrison.
A spokeswoman for Alphabet-Google said that they had found some crows showing territorial behavior in a small area of Harrison’s delivery area. They have requested local ornithologists conduct additional investigations to ensure we have minimal impact on birdlife.
The spokesperson said that service would be temporarily suspended for Harrison’s few customers during this time.
Reports claim that crows are becoming more aggressive towards drones crossing Canberra. This is because certain birds, especially during nesting season, will attack moving objects and show their territorial behavior.
According to the spokesperson, it is rare for a bird to come into direct contact with one of the tens or thousands of items delivered this year to Australian households.
The drone will not fly safely if birds come into direct contact.
“We will continue to listen and follow the advice from independent environmental consultants and ornithological expert to ensure that there is no potential impact on birds,” he said.
Ben Roberts, an eyewitness, documented the attacks and assured the Canberra Times they were being improved by some of the birds every day.
Roberts stated, “It’s only a matter time before they win somebody.”
Roberts explained that although the feathers were still flying the first day of an air battle, they stopped flying the third day and the two crows learned how to avoid the drones’ blades.
He claimed that he even saw paint stains floating in the air, which could indicate that an Australian crow struck the drone.
“It is difficult to determine what the birds do with the drone. It may be a danger to your territory and it must appear strange. Roberts stated that the Terminator-like creature is what they think it is.
Since being restricted by the covid-19 pandemic, Roberts has committed to ordering wing Drink coffee at home and transport it to his house in Harrison by drone. These birds don’t like coffee, so they may not have prevented childbirth.
These attacks could be linked to spring bird nesting season, according to their view.
Wayne Condon, chief pilot of UAV Training Australia (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), said that drone operators should avoid bird nesting places. He advised that drone operators should be alerted if a bird attempts to attack them.
