We'll hear an excerpt from Sy's piece and then host Jeff Young talks with Auburn Superintendent of Public Works, Jerry Delfavero, to find out whether the crows are still a problem. (11:20)

GUESTS: Allen Counter, Jerry DelFavero, David Korten, Paul Winchester
DELFAVERO: I mean we were getting calls all the time.
And with us on the phone now to give us the update is the city of Auburn's superintendent of public works, Jerry DelFavero. Hi Mr. DelFavero?
DELFAVERO: Hi, how are you?
DELFAVERO: We're down to thousands.
DELFAVERO: It is a system.
DELFAVERO: Actually, when we were going to contract with the USDA it was a pretty big amount but it was worth it even at that.
DELFAVERO: Well, I can tell you right now that in the last few years we've had a handful of crow complaints.
DELFAVERO: Well, you know what, we still got salt and snow and dirt
DELFAVERO: So, you know, I mean, you still gotta wash your car – you know, fortunately or unfortunately however you wanna look at it.
DELFAVERO: You know on the outskirts.
DELFAVERO: Well, let me tell you – and, you know, I've been with the city for over thirty years. I mean, just going down, we have an arterial that goes through the town, just going down, if we were down visiting the mall with my family or whatever, the first thing you would do at six o'clock during the winter months is look up to the sky and be amazed at how many crows were there. It was quite a sight to see – I mean, if you've never seen if, you would be shocked. If you were driving through town, you'd probably pull over just to watch that event. It was quite an amazing, amazing sight to see such a flock coming in and going out of Auburn.
YOUNG: Jerry DelFavero is superintendent of the public works department for the city of Auburn in New York talking to us about dealing with far too many crows.
DELFAVERO: Okay, thank you. Yup. Bye.

For the first time, the tools ...

For the first time, the tools are locked in a cage, DPW Supervisor Jerry DelFavero said.

Workers are also under new orders to keep written records of any job-related purchases they make for the department - anything from a new tool to a gallon of paint to a piece of lumber, DelFavero said.
Chain saws are also under lock and key on DPW trucks and the department is looking at using computerized bar codes on all of its equipment and tools for better inventory records, he said.
"We never had these procedures before but it's something we probably should have had before. Unfortunately, it took this situation to change it and I'm hoping this works," DelFavero said.
The department started keeping closer tabs on its inventory after city police recently discovered that several employees - fewer than 10, according to DelFavero - had stolen everything from hand and power tools to several chain saws and a generator in recent years. None of the equipment was locked up.
"(The story) needed to be out there, now it's out there and now we've got to deal with it," DelFavero said.
