Mannington, W.Va. (AP) -- It's not quite Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds," but former Mannington mayor Frank White says he's had enough of the winged creatures for a long time.

White says his neighbor, city councilman Jeff Michael, has been providing a regular smorgasbord for birds, with seed, bread and even french fries.

As a result, white says there are up to 60 birds at a time on his property.

He says most of the birds are pigeons, which he calls a nuisance.

He's asked the city to intervene, but current mayor bob garcia says he's not sure exactly what powers Mannington has in the situation.

Garcia has asked Michael to curtail the bird buffet for a while, and the mayor says Michael has agreed.
