    A bout 200 starlings are eating a lot of my feed placed out for the chickens. They even try to get into storage area. The crap in everything like water containers and feed containers. A hawk comes in multiple times a day even catches one every now again but that is not working well enough. I want to try to trap them to see if I can put a dent in their numbers. Some roost in barn but must roosting someplace else.

    Shooting takes to much time. No poisons to be used on my place.
