There was an article in the Winter 1980 issue of "Technology and
Conservation" on the health dangers of pigeon droppings. Several
diseases can result from inhaling dust generated when pigeon
droppings are shoveled, etc., and these can be fatal.

Copies of the Winter 1980 issue of T&C are still available for
purchase. If you are interested in getting a copy of this issue,
