Starlings,pigeons,and European sparrows are all not protected so all are on the hit list for me! I like the air-rifle over the shotgun just because its quieter and i get more shot opportunities!

Last Winter I shot 7 times into a huge flock of starlings. 39 fell (that I found) and my buddy that was with me said there was more falling out of the sky as he was watching them fly away. I killed 4 with one shot the first day we went out dove huntin this year. I call those non-target species bonus birds.
I didn't climb to the top of the food chain to eat carrots.

In the past I would run the FoxPro with starling distress and shoot them as they landed in the tall cottonwoods behind my parents house with my 28ga or 12ga, if they landed in the yard or outside of shotgun distance my .17wsm makes a mess of them. I also have a purple martin house in the yard and trap the starlings and sparrows that harass the martins.

We shot so many out the fruit trees one year that we trained the hawks to eat them. We would shoot them and then just make a little pile outside of the fruit trees. By the time that we made to the porch the red tail hawks would fly down and eat them or take them back to the nest. They should have all died of lead poisoning but they are still there in the back yard.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood , but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness on this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I love that plop they make when shot with a 17HMR. They love to nest in the bluebird nest boxes along my driveway. In early spring I make sure to keep the HMR in the truck at all times. Usually right beside the 204 that stays in the truck. Of course they are always around the shop and barns but they really tick me off around the bluebirds.

God Bless, Louis

It's hard to keep flying pests out of the home, as nobody can stop them from coming again and destroying everything inside the home, or in the garden area. I remembered last year when there was a farmer first, many of the farmers had participated into the competition, but due to the nuisance of pests like rodents, starlings, the farmers were unable to put their growing grains into the competition, as it was getting destroyed by the pests. So from that day, everyone decided to call the professional pest control services for the eradication of pests.
