You might be used to seeing birds clustered on courthouse domes, but for one area county, they’re becoming a real problem.

Upshur County officials say pigeons gathered on the courthouse windowsills and rooftops are doing significant damage because of their droppings.

That matter is so acidic it could damage the courthouse roof and dome.

Officials are now taking bids for measures to keep the birds off the building, and keep the historic structure intact.

“There’s so much history behind the courthouse.  It burned in 1899, I believe it was, and this is the facility that they built, and we’d like to keep it around as long as we can,” said Commissioner Terry Cutright.

Bids for the project will be accepted until February 12, and the commission will open them at its meeting on the 14th.
