I just feed my crows really well-- we have a thriving bird population in the middle of our town, and I make cheap peanut butter suet for the crows and starlings to devour. I've never seen them steal any babies or eggs from any of our local nests (none have been missing in all of the ones I can monitor). Sure, they can be pesky birds, but if you shoot them all, more will just move in. And despire any problems our American Crows and English Starlings give us, they are beautiful adn interesting flock birds. Heck, I have a pet Starling, and I would adore a pet crow smile
