I had an interesing experience a few hours ago. There are migrating blackbirds of some type in the trees in our neighbor's yard (about a block away). It is unreal, there must be thousands of them, the trees were completely black with birds. The noise was unbearable!:x

Anyways, I was testing launching a tennis ball over a tree in my yard. I noticed the birds became quiet after I shot. Quadzilla is very loud with a tennis ball (much fun;)). The birds started in again, I swear the noise was pure torture!:evil: So, I loaded up Quadzilla and walked over to my neighbor's house. My neighbor is cool with the spudguns, so he could care less.

I got about 10 feet from the huge trees the birds were in... :twisted: Pointed up at the sky (not at any birds)... and... <h1> BOOOOOOOOOMMMMM! </h1>
The birds crapped themselves (rain of bird POO) and flew off like crazy. They flew to the outskirts of town and are out of my hearing range :)

:mrgreen:BTW the birds didnt really rain bird poo:mrgreen:

I hate starlings. Evil little creatures. They don't have any natural predators, so they just overbreed and you get thousands of them all the time. Bah. Evil, evil, evil little creatures.

Crows are the worst, those sorry SOB's have no purposr but to annoy and kill eagle eggs. That is why you bust out the pellet pistol every time you hear one.:)

dude, the birds hate me, even though I have never shot at them.
No matter where I park, the fly to the nearest tree with berries, eat their fill, then fly away, turning my car into Pearl Harbor in the process. It is really pissing me off...

well, i'm gonna break the rules, but ohh well. The other day in my garage i was testing out my slugs, and heard a damn crow cawing and cawing. i thought it would go away, but noooo! so, i load up a slug, walk out there, yell "YOU BETTER RUN YOU MOTHU F*CKER! YOUR GONNA DIE IF YOU DON'T!" so, he doesnt, he just sits there cawing his ass off untill he hears a whizz, but by then it was too late. the slug was traveling just fast enough to not penetrate, so it just transfers all of its momentum to the crow. that SOB went flying i swear at least 50 feet away from the tree it was perched on. i went and found it, and figured that the slug hit it square in the breast, making for a quick kill. well, that night i felt quite satisfied.:D
