A pair of Peregrine falcons has moved into the east side of the Nevada Capitol building causing headaches for staff.

The Nevada Appeal reported Wednesday that while the falcons have scared off problematic pigeons in the month that they arrived, their messy eating has created a new problem.

According to staff, the falcons have littered the grounds with body parts and feathers of their prey.

The falcons’ droppings have left behind stains

Legislative Counsel Bureau Director Rick Combs says he and the staff are aware that Peregrine falcons are protected by federal law and cannot be harmed.

Combs and staff are hoping the falcons will move out on their own once they’ve culled their food source.
