Yes, and quite a few other places around the city.  But there are still 
pigeons to spare.

On the matter of Canada goose eggs, I've also heard that painting the eggs 
with vegetable oil will suffocate the embryos within.  Don't know this for a 
fact. They have become a real problem in some areas around here.  One 
down-county town hires sheep-dogs to herd them out of the local town park.  A 
golf course north of here had a law-suit from a woman who broke her leg when 
she fell over the golf cart running from a goose.  (I wondered which one was 
the goose.)
