    In Montana, that philosophy is called the three 'S's. It also involves a shovel.

    There is a philosophy, part of which involves 'shovel' which can assist landowners in the removal of pest species like crows and magpies from their property. And they are not 'cute'; they're prolific pests no cull will eradicate. But it does help, at least in my spruce trees.

    The problem is that hundreds of nuisance species - including magpies - are federally protected under the US Migratory Bird treaty with Mexico. Do a web search, and you won't believe all the species that are covered.

    I have heard maybe 60 to 70 years ago The State of Utah paid hunters 25 cents for each dead magpie they brought in. We seem to have a lot of aggressive magpies in our Salt Lake Neighborhood stealing eggs from other birds. I even saw 2 of them kill a full grown robin. I would not mind seeing the magpies reduced. They are beautiful birds, but not real nice to the others. I would love to hear a few comments on this.

    This is great news! Try making cream of crow soup. It is delicious, kinda tastes like boiled owl.
    Also a dozen roasted crows at Thanksgiving time rivals a roasted turkey any day. Plus you get twelve wishbones, one for each child in the family.
