I talked to muzzy and he said that you can't shoot them unless they cause damage your crops of property and then the owner of the land can take action . but if they are just there and not causing problems then it is illegal. looks like there is no more :sniper: these birds. He said they are classified as song birds
thanks guys

I believe blackbirds are protected under federal but not state law. If they are in the act of or about to cause depredation you can then get rid of them. I don't know about you but I have never seen a blackbird that wasn't about to commit the dastardly act of depredation. :D
But as I said, I think it is a federal law so you may want to check it out further (local warden).
