They need to put a few new birds on the unprotected list, although I'd start with cormorants. Those SOB's crapping on the cypress trees have killed so many of them, and all they do is eat three times their weight in fish per day and crap everywhere.

It works. We get herons, egrets, cormorants and pelicans on our catfish ponds and kill the shite out of them. We'll burn through cases of shells but after killing a few hundred they will eventually pass over our ponds for somewhere else that is easier feeding.

10 years ago I showed them who was boss. Had very few birds. The start of this year my field was covered with them. After a few shooting parties there is less than 5 birds that stay there at any given time. I did hear a female mallard for the first time ever this morning.
I have had many firsts this year in my pond.
1. First time I see a Pouldeau (sp) Coot. 2. First time I came up on 2 snakes having coitus. 3. First time I see a soft shell turtle. 4. First time I have mallards in the pond. 5. First time I see deer (2) in the pond. 6. First time the plug comes out of the boat and nearly sinks me. Did it twice. 7. First time I have the same airplane fly over my pond for several days. GW? 8. First time I see a mink in the pond. Also found some kind of dam between my levees filled with thick grass, it was huge and have no idea what makes this.
