Abstract

Increasing problems caused by European starlings are described as their population has increased in the Pacific Northwest, causing significant damage in livestock feeding facilities, to fruit crops, and to ornamental holly groves. Starling biology and reproduction is discussed. Experimental methods to reduce damage are described in detail, including use of cage traps and light traps, and development of an avicide using thallium sulphate as the active ingredient.
