Rifleman:

My annual reminder - not that you need one - to please take out as many starlings as you can. Your local song birds will love you for it. I've been shooting them all winter with the old 572 Remington and shorts and my 880 SQ with Remington/Eley Target rounds. That 880 SQ never ceases to amaze me with its ability to pick those black vermin off at all reasonable ranges.

Good shooting folks! :)

I'll second that, and add English Sparrows to the list - they've put a serious hurtin' on the Bluebird population.........

Chinese air rifles do well if you keep ranges short. Is there a link indentifying these exact birds? We tend to shoot what ails us, mostly tree rats (grey squirrel) and some black bird that shows up in the noisy thousands. (Blackbird, starlings, grackle?). And humbly, but how does a fellow know the differenc in an American Sparrow and an English one, apart from the accent? :lol:
