Dear All:

Have any members noticed any birds eating pests? I have seen sparrows
eating aphids, and know chickens will eat small slugs, and in England,
the thrushes, one of the best song birds, will smash snails against a
rock or stone to get at the flesh, do any  North American birds do this?
Of course worms are eaten and grubs, but are there other birds that help
us? Cheers, John E. Bryan
