A high-end machine is designed to clean messes like the bird mess every year in Portland (KTRK)

Wintertime in Portland, Oregon, usually means a big problem with crows -- and their excrement.

However, the city is considering fighting back this year with a new machine: The Poopmaster 6000.

The machine is basically a fancy street cleaner. The machine cleans bird mess off streets and sidewalks.

City officials say they've completed a trial run. If they like it, they'll spend $60,000 to buy their own.
