It just got me to wondering in a weeks time how much of the seed could they eat?
I might be wrong but I believe Birds eat their own weight each day.
Bird Control is a skill all by it's self. Just the other night was a story on the News about Birds roosting on a Telephone Tower. The problem was all attemps to chase them had not worked. They even had a Horn go off every 15 minute that drove the town's people Crazy. Nothing seems to work. I know this small town and it has had that problem for years.
