One of these days the ringneck doves that tease and watch me from the power lines at about 60 feet away



and also gaze at me from about 5 feet away



will one day get it from a slingshot. But the fact that this is all within city limits, i can only dream for now . Its hard to fight the urge, but i dont want to risk any neighborly disruption . Any of you guys going through something similar ?

Yep. In town, they sit on the powerlines, poop on the car, land on the porch rail, and just stand in the driveway and stare at me.
Outside city limits (and I am convinced they know precisely where that line is drawn), I can't get within a hundred yards of them.

I try my best not to disturb the neighbors when shooting around the neighborhood. The birds here are already very jumpy, but not as bad as the ones in the woods. What I'm doin isn't illegal, so I don't think i'll get in any trouble unless of course I break a window. However I ain't no clutz, I haven't gotten into any trouble for the past 3 years so what the heck. Shoot away.

There are house sparrows that live very close to me. However, I can't shoot in New York State. In our house in Canada, where shooting them is legal, there are no house sparrows at my house. WTF!

you can get sparrows with birdshot. no damage to windows or those ceramics on the powerlines. doesn't work with pigeons

Urban squirrels are a constant temptation .... as are urban pigeons. But so far I am resisting ...
