Hello everyone, it was nice to find this website and to find others that feel the same way about these non native pests!!

You've come to the right place! There are alot of us who feel the same way. We've been on other sites/boards, and most have been made to feel like the toys on the Island of Misfits. The other people (the bleeding hearts) treat us as though we have something wrong with us for the way we think and feel.

For some reason, they don't understand that we're trying to do a good thing by ridding the native cavity nesting birds/songbirds of unnatural competitors. They feel it is "nature's way" that this competition happens. That, if a bluebird loses its life and/or the lives of its young to these other birds, that that is "okay". I guess they feel "bad" for the loss, but desire to do nothing about it.

Personally, that way of thinking infuriates me, as does what the other birds do. When I catch house sparrows or starlings, I separate the head from the shoulders, thus, there is no chance for them to escape.
