China’s “Road Of Raining Poo”

If you’ve ever had to clean bird excrement off your car, you know how annoying and disgusting it can be. Residents on a quiet residential street in China are dealing with that problem, but on a much larger scale. Car and scooter owners along Weiyi Road in Zhengzhou, Henan province, have woken on several occasions to finds their cars covered in thousands of white droppings. This happens because more than 1,000 black-crowned night herons, which have recently migrated, have settled on the road. Dozens of nests can be seen in each tree along the road. It’s so bad that some residents have resorted to going outside at night with umbrellas, and many have bought car covers. (Daily Mail)
