Safety BASH birds from airfield

U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Curtis Campbell, the bird aircraft strike coordinator with the 35th Fighter Wing, prepares to shoot a cracker round into the sky at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Sept. 15, 2016. Crackers are the first line of defense to scare birds away from the airspace, but if they refuse to leave, they are depredated with a birdshot round. After retrieving the depredated bird, Campbell delivers it to entomology for proper disposal. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Sadie Colbert)
