Pests? If it weren't for these birds we'd REALLY be infested with pests! Bugs galore! We had a mayor that hated grackles. He went around his yard shooting at them with a pellet rifle. Oh, and while I'm on that subject, I met a very nice couple that loved birdwatching. They had a beautiful backyard with feeders, birdbaths and plenty of vegetation. Then the lady whispered to me (why do people do this when there's nobody around to hear) that she shot sparrows off the feeders from the patio. They were just pests.
