HAGERSTOWN - When the recent nightly shower of bird droppings along South Potomac Street became too much for Carole Feigley to deal with, she did two things.
She called Hagerstown City Hall to report a health hazard and she prayed for assistance from above.
But before the city's Public Works Department could carry out its plan to rid the area of the birds, Feigley said God already had stepped in.
The birds went away and hadn't returned in several days, she said Monday night.
"I believe in prayer," Feigley said. "It's divine intervention. You can't tell me otherwise."
Feigley said hundreds of birds would arrive in the early evening on South Potomac Street between Baltimore and Lee streets, hang out in the trees, make a racket and leave behind messes.
