    Yes, they are considered a song bird. But there are so many of them no one really gives a rip how many you shoot.

    I certainly don't, but I hear tell there are people around who would not be happy if someone did something like that;)

    Most state wardens just don't see things. As for the Feds we have I think one or 2 in the whole state so I doubt very seriously people have much to worry about in my home state. They are a major pest everywhere and can transmit various nasty things via their droppings.

    Jones wrote me a ticket once for shooting blackbirds in my uncles orchard at carpenters lake back in the mid sixties.
