    Looking for a pair of these.
    Anyone have any or know where I may find some.
    Need for an exhibit we are planning.

    Find a marsh outside of the US

  3. Talk to your local fish and game. If it is for an educational facility, they might be able to contact you if they run across a couple.

    Thank you for the information.
    Will contact the State DOC for help.
    Haven't seen any of them around here for over 50 years.
    Have to be a little more careful what I wish for !
  5. Where are you located? I don't think I've gone anywhere without seeing them. We have tons of them.

    They are protected, we don't see many around anymore
  8. USFW should go to my grandparents farm and trap and relocate some, their fields are always full of Red Winged Blackbirds in the summer. They don't do any farming and I think the birds nest in or a long the fields and they are very protective of their nests.
  9. is their specific regulations in yalls states on them.in alabama, the law states no closed season and no bag limits on crows, starlings and blackbirds.

    In Michigan there is no closed season on starlings. Crows have a set season, but no bag limit when the season is open.

    It is VERY illegal, however, to shoot a blackbird in Michigan.

    Don't shoot them, but I think they are considered a pest around here. I live in Tennessee, I see them all the time.
  12. lots in New York but very protected

    You might want to double check that. I would assume it says starlings and sparrows, not blackbirds.
  14. In the US they are a migratory song bird and protected by federal law.
