    Over the past 20 years we've had an annual crow infestation which isn't going away. I was looking at air guns/rifles online and trying to see what I could get away with in the suburbs. Anyone tried this? Any trouble?

    Invasive little sky rats. Disturbing our usual ecosystem. I remember reading a local naturalist's plea for people to drive the crows away. Now I find that there's a lot of information on sending crow souls to hell via air guns. I view this as a CRUSADE.

    Plus, the fucking things have been bringing scraps of bread from the local schools to my backyard and dunking them in my fountain (clever birds) which creates a horrible kind of sludge in my fountain.

    Do I have to love the crows or something? Will I have SJWs protesting my crow reduction efforts?

    You ever see a SMALL crow? It's like they're born full-size. I never see any baby crows.

    Apparently you need full cover, crows can tell the difference between a stick held like a rifle and an actual rifle.

    Check with the local authorities to see what you can do. There may be a law on the books against shooting wildlife in your city because of close proximity to houses, neighbors, etc.
    You can alway put a feeder in the back yard with poison mixed in the bird food.
