Anybody have any suggustions as to how I can deal with the many grackles (starlings) that have invaded my yard? Everything in my yard - deck - sidewalk - arbor - fountain - etc. is constantly covered in poop. When I come home from work each day the bottom of my 165 gallon pond is white. I'm afraid that my fish are going to be poisoned. When I clean it up, it's the same scenerio by the next morning. It actually looks like it snowed overnight in parts of my back yard. I bought an owl statue to use as a deterrent, to no avail. I would appreciate any suggestions. I am rapidly becoming a big-time bird hater !!
