I know some common birds are protected by federal law. So, which ones can be killed without risking some $10,000 fine?

Here in PA European Starlings and English Sparrows are on the no closed season list.

Doubt it. Not a real non native, problem type bird.

I'm pretty sure pigeons and crows are fair game. I think starlings are protected.

There are a couple bluejays I would LOVE to send to birdy hell.

would it be legal to kill a non native species like a macaw, even though they're an exotic?



there's a SHITLOAD of exotic non-native birds in miami thanks to hurricane andrew blowing the zoo away 10 years ago

That would be wild to have one of those land on your window ledge.

You'd be better off catching them alive, as a Macaw can go for up to $3K!!

Starlings, european sparrows, pigeons, eurasian dove, grackles, and blackbirds.... at least in Texas.

I've never met a bird that CAN'T be killed.

Just remember to SSS.

I've heard that some birds are invincible. Haven't seen one yet though.

Personally, I was very dissappointed to learn that seagulls can not (legally) be killed.

with the exception of Bald Eagles of course.

Around here, non-native (introduced) species -- specifically english house sparrow, starlings and pigeons -- may be legally sent to perdition, while native species may not.

Just think of sparrows, starlings and pigeons as illegal aztlanista aliens which dominate the native songbirds and rid yourself of the menace.

Do it for the bluebirds

There are no bullet-proof birds. Fire away.

As the Owner of a Blue and Gold Macaw, I find even the thought of kill one of them to be very disturbing. mmk



Man, if you live inS.Florida you see those bastards all the time, I have never met a more annoying bird in my life than those.

Crows, I know, are fair game. But there aren't any in town that I've seen, they usually live down around Homer from what I have seen.

Ravens? Off limits!
