The Mute Swan has been widely viewed as an invasive species because of its rapidly increasing numbers (doubles in 7-8 years) and its impact on other waterfowl and native ecosystems. Always controversial, Mute Swans are protected in some areas of the U.S. by local laws, for example, in Connecticut.

European Starlings are among the worst nuisance species in North America. The birds travel in enormous flocks; pose danger to air travel; disrupt farms; displace native birds; and roost on city blocks. Corrosive droppings on structures cause hundreds of millions of dollars of yearly damage.

Dandelion- here is my 2 year old with a hat full of dandelion blooms that he picked for me out of our yard. He picked every single dandelion in our yard. So if these are a problem in your lawn... borrow someone's 2 year old!

I live in NE Ohio, Zone 5b. This picture was taken on Friday, March 11, 2011, showing the non-native House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) competing with a native Cardinal at one of my feeders. I have had a flock of about 27 house sparrows all winter.
