Why does it seem that one is always reading about Avitrol killing birds other than those intended?  The latest incident, in Fort Lee, New Jersey, resulted in the deaths of 30 Common Grackles.  Of course, charges won’t be filed for violating the law, because charges are never filed, but it’s nice to dream, isn’t it?
