Crows!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest95262

Honestly they are enough to drive a sane person mad, just no need. How can I get rid of them?, I know I could shoot them but I'm not really down with that I just can't deal with the intrusive noise they make all day.

Crows, as with all wildlife are fully protected and, crows do a great geal of good, imagine, with the huge amount of roadkill on the roads, how bad the bushfly menace would be if crows and eagles were not there to eat most of the dead creatures??

Perhaps see if you are able to use a deterrent to scare them off ? Don't know if local council or something g might be able to point you in the right direction.

 

I don't mind them. I figure we must be just as intrusive to their world. Only they can't shoot us to shut us up.

Why can't they f**k off to the bush then? seriously though they are annoying.

people use all sorts off stuff to kill off roaches or rats or anything else they don't like how are crows any better?

Crows and Kookaburras used to drive us crazy with their noise- sorry, song,lol.. After a while you do get used to it and it doesnt bother you. I compare it to first moving to our home in the UK which was on a bus route and the buses waking us up, after a few months they didnt bother us and we got used to the noise.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Yup, I find this too. I lived rural in the UK for many years and when we moved to a town (albeit small) the noise of traffic and so on used to really disturb me. After a while though you do tend to adjust to the background noise.

Odd spot...Graham Kennedy, a rather prominent tv celebrity in the 1980s/ 1990s was kicked off air for doing crow impressions..."Faaaaarrrrkkkk, faaaarrrrrkkkkk."

 

Mods; apologies if this is too bad; feel free to delete it.

Crows must be the smartest birds. The other day I threw out a stale hard slice of bread - a crow grabbed it and walked over and put it in a puddle of water to soften it up. I call them crows but I believe they are actually Ravens here in Melbourne.

They are smart, I watched a documentary about them years ago, they were dropping nuts on the road so passing cars could crack them open!

We have a few of them in the trees out the back and I don't really hear them now, when I'm on FaceTime to my daughter, she laughs at them, she thinks they sound like sheep!


I drink, therefore I dance.....

Hated them at first too but now used to them. In fact when we went back to UK I missed them! And all the other beastly noises I've grown accustomed too

Because this is their country and we are the "vermin" - the intruders.

Yes, same here in Tassie...everyone calls them "crows" but they are technically Forest Ravens.

Crows don't bother people at all. It's just part of the bird song in Melbourne you should enjoy it. If it keeps u awake wear some earmuffs. If you don't like them in your garden in the day you could try to discourage them with noise.

 

Found something online called crow-away, might be worth a try.

Well maybe Melbourne crows are different from Perth crows then cos i can assure you they are bloody annoying! Just because they dont bother you doesnt mean everyone likes to hear them!
