Hi folks, I'm looking for ideas here. I have these birds eating my fish. I've heard they can eat over 2 lbs of fish per day out of a pond. It kind of adds up! I've heard of them eating people's expensive coi fish too out of their little ponds. There is a huge fine ,I'm sure for killing them and I believe it is against the law to harrass them also. Don't know for sure. Any ideas about to discourage them without breaking any laws? I have 2 ponds that I have stocked and there is one of these birds at one of them every day!
