Angry residents wielding weapons to deter 'bird bombings'

CARROLLTON, TX (CNN) - There is a war going on in Carrollton, Texas between a man and bird.

The herons and the egrets took a neighborhood last year as a nesting ground-- bombing residents homes.

The people there say they were held captive for months.

Not this year.

Armed with air horns and slingshots, residents are trying to annoy the birds enough to chase them away for good.

They can harass the federally protected birds as long as the birds don't lay any eggs.
