They have like 6 litters a year and if we don't get a handle on them soon then they will become a plague like they are in places such as Argentina where they shoot thousands a day and don't even put a dent in the population which is wiping out crops etc. They should be exterminated. If I didn't live in city limits I'd be shooting every single one I saw.
    Agreed, but until the "FEDS" get it together, we are sewered. I talked with a regional BIO about 6 years ago, who told me he was lobbying the "FEDS" to do something about them, back then. He hadn't got a response back at that time. The "FEDS" have dragged their feet on this way to long. There should be an open season on these year round.

    I live near Campbell River and have seen a few pairs of these birds this year. Did not realize they were pests. Another bird we have been seeing more and more of are Yellow bellied sapsuckers, they are pecking our apple trees up very badly, PESTS!
