China's Air Force monkeys around

  At one Air Force base in China there is a problem with flocks of birds.  The Air Force has found a way to reduce the flocks that endanger the aircraft and flight crews.  They use monkeys.  The monkeys have been trained to destroy the nests of birds causing the birds to nest elsewhere.  The animal leaves a scent so the birds will not return.  Clever these Chinese.
