For example, birds can quickly become pests when they eat your fruit, drill holes in your birch trees or eat the fish in your pond. When starlings, grackles, blackbirds and crows roost by the hundreds in trees, they create a serious problem--their droppings can carry any of 60 diseases. Moreover, bird ...

Eventually, they grew in mass numbers, feeding ...
