-What are you?

But during the trial, we saw that many birds die every 250 kilometers. We did research on what we can do about it. As a result of our negotiations with the World Railways Association, we learned that the only solution to birds is to 'get birds used to trains'. We reduced the speed of the train so that the birds got used to the train, then increased it gradually. “The birds will get used to their new partner. "The birds will learn that there is a train there and they should not be in front of it," he said.
-YHT LINE UNDER UNDER COVER
